The main photo that accompanied the story "Residents growl at councillor's plan" (May 30) showed the majority of the children playing on a play structure at Voyageur School, which would be outside the off-leash dog park, on the other side of a six-foot-high fence.

The inset photo showed Dan Legge and his daughter, playing on a 1960s lead-paint-coated play structure, which is just 200 metres east from the modern play structure at Voyageur School.

This old playground equipment is slated for removal regardless of any dog-park developments.

I understand the opposition to the off-leash dog park as it concerns traffic safety, dogs, noise and the loss of a small portion of the play area. I believe a few minor design changes would address many of the concerns.
