There seems to be a problem with “dog feces” in Carroll Park, specfically in the section used by infants and toddlers. Per an email on the Carroll Gardens Neighborhood Association list:
Yesterday, my friend’s sitter came home and mentioned that there was a lot of dog feces in the baby section of Carroll Park. It seems lately there has been a major issue with dog owners using the park, more specifically the baby/toddler section of the park, as an improvised dog run in the early morning and late evening. As you can imagine as a result there is a lot of dog feces not picked up in the play area. My friend has contacted Friends Of Carroll Park, they are aware of the problem but they are having a hard time getting a response from anyone and they are looking for some suggestions on spreading the word. I personally love dogs but It’s a disgrace that people are not picking up after their dogs and leaving it for babies & toddlers to come into contact with and the health risks. I’m posting this to make everyone aware and to spread the word.
God, we hate this kind of, uh, shit.
