Here is an interesting post from a local blogger about the fence that the City is building around the off-leash dog walking area at the filtration plant and the issues that it is bringing up. 
The City really does need to make sure that public consultations are just that.

Exactly. I think having the dog area is excellent, and fencing it provides protection for dogs and other folks who don't want dogs running around loose while they're enjoying other park activities. Issues around the location and design of the park can all be worked out if the City is open to consultation and some give and take. I think we will see the local dog owners look after their dog park and enhance it as well, much like Mississauga dog owners do at parks like Jack Darling and Etobicoke Creek. If the City works with local residents, we can improve our parks for everyone. I don't think we have to settle for mediocrity.
