SANDY SPRINGS, GA (CBS46) -

No animals allowed is the new message the City of Sandy Springs wants to get out. Pet owners are no longer allowed to walk their dogs at City Springs Park.

This week Sandy Springs City Council approved the measure to ban dogs on the green space. 

Officials say having dogs in the space creates a health concern because pet waste was constantly being left behind in an area where people are encouraged to sit on the grass. 

But the residents we spoke to tell a different story. They say they have never seen pet waste left behind and they feel the city has gone too far.

"It's a city park where in the city they try to build it up at all these apartments and make it like a city where the dogs gonna go," said one pet owner.
