I would just like to reply to Ms. Swink’s editorial, ‘Improvements Needed to Expand Access’
She obviously thinks that people enjoying the beach with their off-leash dogs do not matter,- they should be replaced by other users she wants to bring into the area.
This is in spite of the fact that the 90 acre fenced off-leash area is the most heavily used space in all of Mission Bay Park.
Every day, 365 days a year, hundreds to thousands of tax paying citizens use this area to exercise with their dogs.
While there are over 40,000 acres of parkland in San Diego only about 40 of those acres (not including Fiesta Island) are available for off-leash use. That is about 1% of the public parkland.
