Dog parks get people out in the street and talking to each other. They become a "3rd Place" in the language of Ray Oldenburg from his 1989 book "The Great Good Places". O4W crime (APD Zone 6, Lt Doug Little) has gone down 60% since it's opening in 2015.  The park is maintained by the City of Atlanta and the BOD.WEBSITE
