The controversial proposal to ban children from Arlington dog parks will not come to fruition after all. As Gwyn Donohue of the blog Two Dog Tales first reported, the county has decided to keep the existing rules in place.
Officials have been taking in feedback and holding listening sessions since the proposal was brought up earlier this year. The idea was to ban children under the age of 8, and to require parental supervision for children aged 8 through 14.
In a letter to Community Canine Area sponsors and users, Arlington County Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources Director Dinesh Tiwari said the existing rules and regulations are adequate. However, the county will take some additional steps to make sure dog park users comply with rules. One measure is to install signs advising parents “to pay close attention to their children to ensure that they remain under direct supervision at all times.”
The county will continue to take feedback on how the beefed up rules and regulations are working.
