Athlone Gardens is particularly popular with families – due to the well-used children’s play area – and dog owners. In order for everyone to enjoy the park to the full, it’s important for dog owners to keep their dogs under control, and pick up anything they leave behind.
Most dog owners in the neighbourhood are very responsible. If issues do arise, however, RBKC’s Parks Police Officers can help by:
• Issuing fixed penalty notices for dog fouling and failing to pick up
• Instructing a dog owner to put a dog on a lead immediately
• Obtaining a muzzle order through the courts
• Obtaining stringent conditions including banning orders from the courts
The Parks Police Officers’ role is to ensure that all parks across RBKC remain safe so that everyone can enjoy them. You can also pick up a free dog poo bag dispenser from reception at the Catalyst office, 314b Ladbroke Grove.
