SALT LAKE CITY -- Some Salt Lake City residents are angry over the decision to turn a neighborhood park into an off-leash dog park.

Officials with Salt Lake City's Parks Division are considering turning part of the Cottonwood Park into the dog park, but some neighbors say they were never contacted by park officials. They also fear there won't be enough policing of the park rules and that off-leash dogs will drive out the park's regular users.

Parks officials say they did complete the requirements for public notification, but they say the change is not set in stone.

The off-leash area will have a one-year probationary period, after which the issue will be taken back to the community.
