Parks & Recreation closes another area to dogs due to excessive poop

June 3, 2020 – FYI

The City and Borough of Juneau Parks & Recreation Department has temporarily closed another area to dogs due to excessive poop – the grass strip along the North Franklin parking lot on Franklin and 2nd. Violations will be reported to Animal Control.

Parks & Recreation will continue to close other areas if the problem persists. Dog waste does not biodegrade like wild animal waste; it sticks around a long time. Dog waste also contains harmful bacteria, pollutes groundwater, and has an unpleasant odor.

Help keep Juneau free of poop by picking up your pet’s waste and disposing of it properly. Please bring your own bags on dog outings. For more information, contact Park Maintenance at 364-2800.
