Unleashed dogs

Is anyone else out there becoming concerned about the increasing number of unleashed dogs in our neighborhood? I can’t even take the kids out to T.T. Minor park anymore as it is being used as an illegal off leash park most of the time.  Help me to understand….if you are one of the people who constantly let your dogs run free on the streets or in the parks, why do you do this? I am asking seriously asking as I do not see a benefit for either the animal or people, but I am trying to keep an open mind. Thank you.
