What's new?

Dog debates
Controversy over unleashed dogs was the main issue at the Friends of Clark Park winter Membership Meeting on Jan. 13. For months now, complaints about aggressive dogs, mostly in the Bowl, have been simmering in the neighborhood.

More than 55 people crammed into a USP classroom for serious debate on the way dogs and people are getting along in the park. Both "pro" and "con" factions were well represented. Discussion was impassioned while remaining focused and courteous.

A committee will be appointed to look into the feasibility of a dedicated dog run, of leash law enforcement, and other related issues. Contact for details.

Events guidelines
A committee on amplified-sound events is preparing recommendations for minor changes in the Recreation Department's current guidelines. These should reduce stress on the community and make festival organizers' jobs easier. Contact for details.

Information, please
The FOCP board voted in December 2003 to replace the crumbling, inefficient bulletin boards around the park with two new information kiosks: one for the North Park and one near the playgrounds. FOCP wants a durable design that will be adequate for a heavily used community information center. Contact for details.

How has the renewal plan and the Farmers' Market helped Clark Park? A Penn student's paper explains.

'Hack' helps out
Thanks to Big Ticket Productions, producers of the TV show "Hack," for a $500 donation following filming in Clark Park last summer. And a special pat on the back to FOCP member Anne Kringel for soliciting the contribution. Way to go, Anne!
