Keep your pooch out of the park. The South Burlington City Council has ordered the dog park at Jaycee Park be closed permanently. A notice went out saying it's due to excessive noise in the residential neighborhood.

Some dog owners aren't thrilled with the decision.

"Mostly, people coming to the dog park, their dogs are friendly and they want to play with other dogs and socialize a little bit," said Ryan Lamothe, who opposes the closure of the dog park. "So, yeah, we popped in here today and saw the signs and it's definitely a bummer. Definitely a bummer."

The city is looking for a new location for a dog park and is encouraging people to use the dog park off Swift Street in the meantime.
