Persistent Dog fouling

I wish to ask the council what to do to prevent this unhealthy nuisance. Selfish owners walk their dogs to the park along Langton Road. Some allow their dogs to foul the pavement regularly. Children attending the local St Annes primary school have to walk through the mess with their mothers and push chairs.
Bristol Council responded quickly and undertook to fix "No dog fouling" signs. Apparently they say there are signs in place already but I can't see them so presumably no one else can either.
I will get back to them and ask for more visible signs.

The existing "no dog fouling" signs are useless They are wrapped round lamposts about 8 feet up in the air. Not noticeable at all. Bigger bolder signs at eye level are needed. I have told the dog warden's office which says it will investigate. In the meantime the fouling continues. If anything it is worse.

I don't think better and more noticeable "no dog fouling" signs are available from the City Council. The dog warden dept people sound sympathetic but in practice I think there is very little they can do.
I may buy my own big sign and fix it to my wall outside the house.
