A concerned citizen files a complaint about unleashed dogs at the ball field off Lamartine Street in Jamaica Plain - and not for the reason you might expect:
We have a persistent problem with dog owners using the baseball field as an off leash park. The dogs often dig holes in the outfield and destroy the field. I have seen kids get hurt trying to make a catch. Please monitor and maybe fine dog owners. I have talked reasonably and they will make all sorts of excuses about how they don't have an off leash space for dogs but really bad for the kids.
DCR, which owns the adjacent Southwest Corridor Park, claims it's really going to build a dog park there.
