Monday, 05 May 2008 Written by Web-Editor All walkers are welcome in Woodheys park and it is frequented by a considerable number of dog walkers. From opening time before work to evening times in the summer the community walkway around the edge of the park is full of dog walkers.
21 dog bins are laid out around the park for collection of dog waste and joe, our park keeper has plastic bags if poop-a-scoop’s have been left at home.
As in any park cleaning up after your dog is rigourously enforced. This is a family park after-all with children of all ages enjoying the amenities the park has to offer.
That said we have everything from mongrels to Pedigree “Crufts” standard dogs using the park. You can often see owners putting their dogs through their paces, marking out and mimiccing the walks they would do in show.
We do try to keep dogs off the pitch and putt and five-a-side pitches for obvious reasons but inevitably dogs do stray into these areas and care has to be taken by dog owners to repect these facilities but apart from that they are welcome throughout the park.
