You mean people were trespassing on this private area? I was wondering why nothing was built on it previously.

Just because there was an opening in the fence doesn't mean anyone can just walk in and do as they please.
Have you ever been to this area? Speculation without first hand knowledge is dangerous, actual observations from people who frequent this property carries much more credible weight.

Yes, that is what was going on. Can you imagine..... dog owners are upset with other dog owners who don't pick up after their dogs. HOW DO YOU THINK THE PROPERTY OWNERS FEEL????

That should help with showing who owns what of that Rio Grande area field used in the past as a make shift dog run. Dog owners have been using it for one since at least 2008 if not before.

I did not get a dog until January of 2007 but had heard of people using it for a long time. It sounded like that they were a few hold-outs who did not want to sell their property to the Villages.

Too bad some of the dog owners stopped picking up after their pooches.

???? Using property that is not posted and has a welcoming access point is not trespassing. It is an open field with no homes and is used by the owner(s) for nothing but harvesting hay bails. I have had several occasions to converse with the very friendly folks operating the equipment used to make the big rolls of hay. A couple of them even asked if they could pet my dog. That my friend is not trespassing!

Probably an honest mistake. I was going to buy a property that backed onto that lot. I asked the real estate agent what was going on there as it looked empty and she didn’t know. She stopped some of the people who lived next door and asked them and no one seemed to know anything. So I could see how that could be interpreted as an open area.
Also, it would seem that that area of the Villages is underserved with dog parks.

OK if you say so. I don't have a dog in this fight and like you and the others.... it's not my property! I don't care if you use it. I really don't. Actually I like having a smaller number of dogs at the Postal Stations. Just looked it up TRESPASSING

From an online dictionary I found real quick:

trespassing
1.
enter the owner's land or property without permission.
"there is no excuse for trespassing on railroad property"
synonyms: enter without permission, intrude on, encroach on, invade, infringe, impinge on; archaicentrench on
"there is no excuse for trespassing on railroad property"
make unfair claims on or take advantage of (something).
"she really must not trespass on his hospitality"
synonyms: take advantage of, impose on, make use of, play on, exploit, abuse, make unfair claims on
"I must not trespass on your good nature"
