A corner of the Eagle Rock Recreation Center would be turned into a no-leash zone – a place where dog owners could let their pets run free without fear of getting a ticket – if the the neighborhood council gets its way. On Tuesday night, the Eagle Rock Neighborhood Council voted in favor of fencing off a section of the Eagle Rock Recreation Center near Eagle Vista and Figueroa Street for a no-leash zone, reports Patch. This would not be a dog park, said Vince Antonino, who proposed the idea. What’s the difference between a no-leash zone and a dog park. The story says:
The plan, proposed by former ERNC member Vince Antonino, is different from a dog park in that it entails nothing more than a relatively small but secure zone for unleashed dogs, adding that the only difference between a no-leash zone for dogs and a full-fledged dog park is size. The ideal location for a no-leash zone would be a gently sloping, tree-lined area of the Rec Center on the corner of Eagle Vista Drive and Figueroa Street, near the tennis courts, Antonino said.
While the no-leash zone won the support of the neighborhood council, the proposal must still be reviewed and approved by the city’s Recreation and Parks Department.
