The dog park has been stripped of vegetation along the outlet from the dam-the South Platte River. It used to be beautiful to walk among the salt cedars and shrubs, many birds and welcome shade. It looks like a nuclear bomb has gone off and such toxic chemicals used nothing is regrowing. Supposedly this was done to improve water flow incase of a "100 year flood," Have they seen a 100 year flood? A little salt cedar and shrubbery isn't going to slow it down, they move buildings for god sake. They have fenced off all access to the river now with an ugly fence. There is little to no shade, ponds with stale water which has been known to make some dogs ill. And they have the nerve to charge more. For six years I bought a yearly pass and would go several times a week (35 minutes one way) it was worth it. Now, it makes me sick. I went once in May just to check it out. Never again. Beauracracy at it's most ignorant, arrogant and irresponsible.
