To all who choose to let your dog off leash in Lincoln Park - either in the upper meadows or the beach area - be forewarned. It may not happen this month but it's coming and it's not cheap.
If you're reading this and know of people who use the illegal off leash area in the upper meadow or have dogs running along the beach or elsewhere in the park, please let them know this is going to happen at some point in the near future.
I've learned that:
A) No warnings are given, tickets are issued.
B) Proper licensing will be checked and must be present or additional violations will be issued.
A BIG thanks to all who obey the law and especially those that attempt to get their fellow dog owners to comply as well. From experience, I know it's not fun.
And please, no flame mails in response. If you have a legitimate point, it's always welcome.
