"We really enjoy coming to the dog park! The only thing I think we can improve it cleaning after your dog. Every time we come in we need to pick other dog's business just so we do not step on it. Please keep the park clean!!"

Ithaca (where else?) tries composting dog waste (visit link)
"The park is among the first in the country to organize a dog waste composting effort to help reduce the waste of some of the 50,000 dogs that visit the park annually. The Tompkins County Dog Owners Group and Cayuga Compost hope to market usable compost within the next two or three years. A group of upstate New York dog owners thinks it has a can-do plan to profitably compost the tons of dog doo left behind by the roughly 50,000 canines that use the city's pooch park each year...But large-scale composting has worked at the Parc Notre Dame de Grace in Montreal, Canada, where municipal officials have been composting dog waste since 2004 and annually divert about a ton of dog waste and 7,000 plastic bags from the local landfill.

Kochian estimated Cayuga Compost has been collecting about 1,000 pounds of poop monthly from the nearly 5-acre Ithaca Dog Park."
