This one goes out to Mr. Nibbles and his quest for a dedicated dog park. It’s about time someone, or some dog, took up the cause.
If Burbank can spend thousands of dollars on a superfluous statue at a park spot that’s anything but leisurely or usable, it can surely afford to set up a simple parcel of land for dogs to commingle and run free. No need for a state-of-the-art play set, expensive safety measures or arduous design review. Just a plot of fenced-in grass, some pooper-scoopers and plastic baggies, drinking fountains and some shaded seating areas.
This city has shown time and again that it can step over the political quicksand and get things done that address obvious needs, no matter the gripes and complaints of the few, which usually come around in the end anyway.
