We ask that when visiting the park you enjoy it whilst thinking of the enjoyment of others by showing consideration – whether towards your fellow park users (including school children and other groups) or those people that live in the neighbourhood. To help everyone to enjoy sharing the park please:
• Be respectful of how you park your vehicle on nearby streets (especially park safely so people can cross Scriven Road and gain access to the park in clear view).
• Keep your dog under close control at all times.
• Take your litter home.
• Pick up your dog’s poo in the park and on pavements and deposit it in the dog poo bins situated at the front of the park.
• Please do not bring any plants, trees or shrubs to plant in the park (including the pond) as this can spread disease and affect native species.
• Please do not let your dog swim in the large fenced off community wildlife pond.
• As a friend of the park it would be great to see you at volunteer events, or you can just keep in touch with park life by contacting us through the website.
• We would appreciate you reporting any antisocial behaviour in the park to the police on 101.
• It is against the law to let any type of dog to be dangerously out of control in any location, including Jacob Smith Park. A dog is considered to be dangerously out of control if it: 1)injures someone 2) makes someone worried that it might injure them 3)it attacks someone’s animal 4) the owner of an animal thinks they could be injured if they tried to stop a dog attacking their animal. The police is the most appropriate enforcing authority for this and you should contact them on 101 or in an emergency 999.
