Bag it, Bin it

When you visit the Park you will see posters encouraging dog walkers to pick up after their dog.

The poster chosen is the winner in a competition which three local schools took part in.

We know how much Park users dislike dog poo. It is people's top complaint.

Most dog walkers do pick-up and we are asking those who don't pick-up to start to do so as the Park is for everyone to enjoy and to share.
