The Park is wonderful and the pooches will certainly love it.
My question is...Why are there NO signs? Several people have asked me where it is...it's tucked away along side the old K-Mart...But there are no signs on the road to indicate where it is!

Lynda,
I believe the answer to your question is that it was determined that horses were too destructive to the foot trails in the pine barrens.

I note from the Newday article that the representative from the Brookhaven Department of Parks is quoted as saying that they "didn't have to cut down too many trees" for the dog park as they wanted to use some of them for the park.

I ask...why is Dick Amper so quiet...not politically popular enough of a topic to get his mug plastered all over Newsday?????

Can you say hypocrisy?
