SPORTS, SPORTS, SPORTS AND MORE SPORTS!!! What about THE ARTS? What happened to the planned theater complex that was suppose to be included in the New Bernal Park area? While I wouldn't be in favor of an outside type theater, I would think a smaller venue with 500 seats would be appropriate. Livermore has the Bankhead Theater and it is a great place, even hosting what used to be Pleasanton Playhouse, now called Tri Valley Rep. but yet their offices still exist in Pleasanton. The Amador Theater on the campus of Amador High School is not a good place for several reasons, even after undergoing many upgrades over the years. The new Firehouse Theater is small and quaint and it also has it's drawbacks.

So what happened to the four more baseball fields, we already have numbers four and six up and running I believe and where's the basket ball courts that were spoke of. This was suppose to be a center piece, compareable to Dublins Fallon complex, it's nothing close. This is just another example of Pleasanton BS. This place will become Pleasanton PDs new stomping grounds for all its great places for illegal activity, including the the off leash dog walkers and model plane enthusiast who will treat this place like it's own doggie poop park like the rest of the town. Wonder how many fix the Pleasanton PD has written for illegal dog waste or off leash violations ? Can someone post those stats ? Bet they don't exist. Will soon be the same message Shadow cliffs back lakes have become. Good luck for this place becoming anything more than a giant doddie poop place like the sports park.

blah, blah, dog poo. Yawn.

A dog park and a few bag stations would solve any such perceived problems (accent on "perceived").

Please congratulate NWWP on having so few problems that this one stands-out. Web Link

The dog problems are real and if you can't keep your off leash dog under control, I call the police. And they do respond; I've seen it.

It wasn't really hilarious when our dog was attacked because some idiot couldn't control her dog or keep it on a leash.

Too bad a lot of owners do need training.

I see three small fields with lights - but they are not regulation size fields for soccer or football, rugby etc....

it looks like the two fields next two each other could possibly be combined to make one field for an actual game, but that' it.

Were these supposed to be three regulation sized fields, or am I missing something???

Don't miss out on the discussion!
