It never seemed like the rules were that important to a lot of people who used the Evergreen Bark Park. Dog waste was routinely left and not picked up. Some people put the waste into plastic bags and then left the bags on the ground. When the parking lots were full, people routinely parked along the street, often right next to no parking signs. Other people didn’t use leashes when they took their dogs from their cars to the designated off-leash areas.
