Mayor Peduto inherited this problem. The "$60,000 grant" was actually public money from the City's capital budget. The public is excluded from use of the entire front lawn of Olympia Park by a chain link fence which forms a corral for sole use as a dog park. Petitions were submitted to Mayor Peduto with 390+ signatures in opposition to the dog park in the present location. Another 200+ households expressed opposition through their organization's Board. Neighbors, including many dog owners, bordering the Park were NOT notified or included in the planning of the "dog park" while hundreds of others remote from the park were notified. No legislation adopted this use for this area and no planning reviews or approvals were sought/received.
