The Boston Parks and Recreation Commission approved a plan Monday to establish five areas on Boston Common where dogs can run and play leash-free. Under the plan, proposed by the Friends of the Public Garden and its Common Canine subcommittee, two of the areas will be used for a six-month period before the off-leash area is rotated to other sites. Signs will be posted and trash cans added to the new off-leash sites. Park rangers can ticket pet owners for allowing their dog off-leash in nondesignated areas or for not picking up after their pets.
