    We have a big 'Carnival of Flowers' every year, our main park is beautiful at this time of year however there is also an off leash area in this park, so dogs are obviously digging up the flowers etc which isn't good at all, plus a lot of owners refuse to pick up poop because council don't supply bags... It's not hard to buy bags from the supermarket.. Just one of those cases of a select few ruining it for everyone. At our local park, someone actually bought a bag holder and tied it to a tree, everyone brings in their plastic bags to fill it up and it was a system that worked very well... Council mowed the park on Monday and the same day our bag holder disappeared... They obviously aren't into encouraging picking up poop.

    It's the park where million paws walk is held every year, so I don't know how they can completely ban dogs.. Maybe just off leash.

    One of our local councils spends $10,000 a year on dog bags for their parks. And they reckon they only had 2000 dogs registered. But 1000 dogs go for a walk in the parks and do an average of two craps... and that's 2000 bags a day... times 365 days... 73 poops per dollar. Not bad really. If my maths isn't completely screwed. And I'm pretty sure there are way more than 2000 dogs in that council area.
