Anyone ever get “caught” with their dogs off the leash?

Despite walking by this sign often, I never really read it. Luckily I did, because I was thinking of bringing a Snapple and changing the oil in my car there this weekend. Whew!

the area behind the sun house in picture was at one time a giant fish pond stocked with what we called giant goldfish It was filled in in the late fifties. And nobody was allowed to walk on the grass never mind bring a gog in the park. The park was patroled by a hudson county cop who took no lip from anyone and if you dared you got a swift kick in tha ass.
