That's what I've always said and it's part of the language we use when we raise money for our neighborhood dog park. Dog parks encourage responsible pet ownership, which is what we need in an area where people just keep dogs as a theft deterrent.
As for the deck park, yeah I wish they would just say they learned from KWP that they'd need a much bigger dog enclosure to make it functional and other uses like the children's playground turned out to be much more popular than anticipated and win out in the contest for square footage.
On the topic of gentrification, I hope they're making a distinction between the east and west sides of I35. The NW side of the park is in desperate need of redevelopment, and they can build a carbon copy of West Village there for all I care.
