No dogs (whether leashed or unleashed) are allowed on fields maintained for sports use. Sports fields are intended for use by sports teams, and dog use creates serious health and safety hazards, including:
- Dogs create/expand turf holes, which creates trip and twist hazards
- Dog waste – even trace amounts – is more likely to come into contact with sports users, who are handling balls/equipment that touches grass.
- Serious infections can also result when dog waste comes into contact with wounds.
