I visited the pocket park at the south end of Pontoosuc Lake for a breath of fresh springtime air this past weekend. I was appalled to find dog poop nearly every step of the way. I think the harsh winter made a few irresponsible pet owners skip the pickup.

Our natural surroundings are a treasure to behold and to be enjoyed by all. I am a pet owner and resent the few who are not courteous in cleaning up after their pet. Bags are even provided at the park.

I am sure before long the park will be used by many seeking an enjoyable outdoor experience. Perhaps it is time to add a reminder sign to clean-up! It’s the law! Pass the word! ROSLYN ROBINSON MANN
