No Dogs Allowed in Maggie Daley Park When it Opens

DNAinfo reports that dogs will not be allowed in Maggie Daley Park.

Bob O'Neill, head of the Grant Park Conservancy, said the Park District's decision "seems reasonable," and the Park District is "trying to minimize damage and protect wildlife" in the park.

"I think it's fair, and there has to be a reasonable balance. A lot of damage has been done to parks and their landscaping because of dogs," O'Neill said, adding the issue was irresponsible dog owners, not dogs.

"[The Cancer Survivors Garden] was destroyed," O'Neill said of the recently rehabbed garden at Grant Park. "It was used as a dog toilet, which is very disrespectful to cancer survivors."
