~~<p><strong>Question:</strong> We recently were asked by a police officer to leave Thomas Square with our leashed dogs, because the sign says, &quot;No Animals.&quot; He said he had received a complaint and wouldn't write any citations that day, but if we returned he would have to cite us. The city Department of Parks and Recreation lists the park as an on-leash dog park, with dogs permitted off-leash during permitted obedience training and trials. Thomas Square has been used for dog training and events for decades. Can the signs be changed?</p>
<p><strong>Answer:</strong> Despite the city allowing dogs at Thomas Square Park, signs around the perimeter of the park have said, &quot;No Animals.&quot;</p>
