Should dogs be banned from the Singapore Botanic Gardens?

MY WIFE and I frequent the Singapore Botanic Gardens. And what worries us is people walking their dogs, especially the larger breeds. These dog owners/handlers don't seem to know how to restrain their pets although they are leashed, putting us at risk of being attacked if provoked by other dogs for example. Also, the dogs are not muzzled. Is it not compulsory to muzzle and leash dogs in a public area? The Botanic Gardens is also a place for children and toddlers so the relevant authorities should consider a ban on dogs at its premises as a precautionary measure. At the very least, they should impose the muzzle rule strictly in addition to ensuring that the dogs are leashed.
