Brook Run Dog Park enjoys the shade of hardwood trees, friendly people and lots of dogs.
For some, that's pretty close to as good as it gets. A shady place to get out of the sweltering summer heat, or kick through the fall leaves, exercise your dog and chat with a new friend on one of the park's benches.
The other side of the coin, however, is that the dog park is over-loved. Too many animals can hurt the large tree stand there and eventually kill it altogether.
The city has budgeted $200,000 in its proposed 2013 spending plan to move the park to another spot in the 100-acre Brook Run Park.
Neighbors living near the 4-acre park largely applaud the move - as they are worried that the dog park could pollute West Nancy Creek, increase erosion and flooding in the area, and become more of a nuisance.
What do you think? Should Brook Run stay in the place where it has made its mark as one of the best dog parks in Atlanta? Or should it be moved and perhaps downsized to fit with a larger city plan to improve Brook Run Park.
