Incidents regarding dogs off leash in the Ridgeline Trail System have caused concern for people who use the park and property owners who live in the vicinity of the park. There has been an increase in complaints in regard to people who use the trail and property owners not feeling safe allowing their children to play in their backyard with dogs on the property. Eugene Animal Services is reminding people to be aware of park rules and to be mindful of other people who use the trail.
For more information about park rules, please visit the Eugene Parks and Open Space website, https://www.eugene-or.gov/index.aspx?NID=1096. Failure to abide by the rules can result in a $500 fine and/or up to 30 days in jail.
