Invalid Wayspot Report Appeal - Bowring park Dog Park

When submitting a Wayspot Appeal, make sure to include as much of the following information as possible:

  • Wayspot Title: Bowring park Dog Park

  • Location (lat/lon): 47.504203,-52.758801

  • City: St. John’s, Newfoundland & Labrador

  • Country: Canada

  • Screenshot of the Rejection Email (do not include your personal information):

  • Additional Information (if any):
    At this location, there exists only a row of mailboxes next to a private residence. See below photograph of area taken May 22, 2024. Link to street view of the area, captured June 2022.

While not a true duplicate, the actual location has an existing wayspot approximately 2.3 km away: Waterford River Dog Park, 47.525361,-52.758268. Link to street view of the area, captured August 2023.

There are a few notable discrepancies between the two POIs. In 2021, the Waterford River Dog Park was subdivided into two separate dog parks, one for large dogs and one for small dogs and renamed Bowring Park Off-leash Large Dog Park and Bowring Park Off-leash Small Dog Park respectively. The location of the existing POI corresponds with what is now the Large Dog Park. Photo, title edit, and wayspot submissions have been entered to fix these issues:

The main takeaway is that there is no dog park at the reported POI’s location, and a functional duplicate exists elsewhere.

Thanks for the appeal, @tiagoroth. After reviewing the additional evidence provided, we’ve decided to retire the Wayspot in question.
