Is Rover about to get some room to roam?
The city is considering building a dog park at Berry Street Park—and we're not saying it was Patch's idea, but the suggestion did get a little attention last year in Corky Lang's column, "It's Time for a Dog Park in Lemon Grove."
What can we say? We're dog lovers.
An online survey asks questions to gauge interest in having a play place for pups at the park, considers a variety of concerns with such a plan, seeks to find out what would work best (separate areas for little guys from the big dogs?), and inquires whether residents would be willing to volunteer their time or donate materials to the park.
Dogs are currently allowed on-leash at the city's five parks, and must be licensed. Berry Street Park boasts six acres, and features a playground, walking path, and picnic areas. It's the site of the city's annual Concerts in the Park series each summer.

What do you think: Should the city give man's best friend a place to romp around—or are they barking up the wrong tree? Tell us in comments!
