Couldn’t resist this sign, which is posted in the public park near Euston Station in London. I’ll leave it to readers to make their own comments.
London is full of parks both public and private. Yes, private in that they’re fenced off and you need a key to access. Neighbors might have a key — others do not. And parks that have been there hundreds of years.
In San Francisco we’re not used to this concept of private parks. Frequently one encounters brass plates in the sidewalk stating “Right to pass… by permission of owner…” and in some cities, like New York, owners of private property that is open for trespass will close off their right-of-way once a year, just to enforce their right of ownership.
The dog sign might be related to this second sign, shown below, that is posted in Golden Gate Park, in San Francisco. I’d guess that giving the bison psychoactive substances might induce bison-related antisocial behavior. Or worse.
