Dogs could be banned from Haringey parks
The leash is set to tighten on dog walkers as Haringey Council considers a ban on man’s best friend in some areas of parks.
The authority is poised to consult on plans to exclude dogs from playgrounds and quieter areas of parks if the Dog Control Orders are brought in.
Parks that would be affected include Priory Park in Middle Lane, Crouch End, Alexandra Park in Muswell Hill, and Stationer’s Park in Mayfield Road, Crouch End.
Cllr Nilgun Canver, environment chief, said the orders would help to protect the peaceful feel of parks.
She said: “This has come about from our residents across the borough who kept telling us that there are problems.
You may also want to watch:
“They have complained that in quiet sections of the park people let their dogs off leads and go running about.
“This can scare and intimidate some people. It is not acceptable”
