    the link from MagnoliaVoice was dead. Not a particular surprise.

    Several quick points:
    Early focus of the park was to preserve and encourage the natural environment of the park. This was generally followed by park staff and users for quite some time. As city density and dog ownership has increased, the park has become more popular for people and their pets, often unleashed.There now exists a major dichotomy between those who want to preserve the natural state of the park and those who see this as a huge open dog park. The natural ecological aspects of the park are disappearing rather quickly as it becomes just another urban park. The City of Seattle is totally complicit in this evolution with under funding of existing programs, under enforcement of existing laws and a huge lack of intelligentmaintenance.
