Del Mar City Council votes to ban dogs in part of Powerhouse Park

Posted: Updated:

DEL MAR (CBS 8) - The Del Mar City Council has unanimously approved a plan to ban dogs and other pets from part of Powerhouse Park.

The ordinance will apply to the section of the beachfront park that includes a tot lot and the grassy area next to it.

Leashed dogs will still be allowed in two-thirds of the park.

The idea behind the ordinance is to provide a barefoot friendly area where toddlers and small children can play.

"That's the idea, so that families can come and use the grassy area with the feeling that other animals won't be around," said Del Mar Mayor Terry Sinnott.

Those who oppose the ordinance say there's never been any problems with dogs in the past and there's no reason to restrict their presence now.
