Where can I walk my dog?

Ordinance 409-2 states that: No person shall Allow any animals, leashed or unleashed, in any park with the following exceptions:

(1) Dogs that assist the physically handicapped.

(2) Properly licensed dogs on a leash of less than six feet in length that are within six feet of any bike or walking trail within a park. In allowing such animals on trails, the pet owner must remain in control of the animal at all times. The owner is responsible for proper disposal of pet waste. For trails that terminate in a Town park that does not contain a designated trail within said park, the owner must remain on the paved park road with the animal as the owner actively walks through park with the animal.
