So the dogs poop and the owners don't pick it up, the kids then play softball and slip on the poop and are injured. Even if the owners pick up the poop sometimes it's not possible, dogs have diarrhea too!! Is the City responsible?

I don't agree that children should have to share a play area where dogs have been left to run around.

There should be a separate area for dogs built on open land near West Bayshore and Hwy 101.
