Well done no dogs

I have just read about the no dogs policy and have decided to take the kids as a result. Well done Draycote. I live near Memorial Park and am always concerned about taking kids there, especially as care free and irresponsible dog owners let them roam free (in no dog areas). There is one guy who has about 8 dogs off the lead. There is not a chance that he could do anything if the pack decided to attack a kid. Not all kids understand dogs and not all dogs understand kids.
