So they're building a dog run in the park across from where I live, which until now has mostly been used for smoking crack. It's pretty amazing to see how quickly the demographic of the park is changing - dog owners from all walks of life are now hanging out, chatting and picking up poo together. It has completely changed the feeling of the park - it now feels like it's really being used. The crack dealers are still there, but now it's more of a multi-use public space. Also, watching dogs play together in the spring might be the cutest thing ever.
