The frequent finding of soil contamination by dogs' feces are remarkable, and such soil contamination may be public health problem. Of 608 samples, 30(4.9%) were positive for nematode ova. Ten paint 3% of sail samples from parks and 7.9% from footpaths were found to contain nematode eggs. Of the helminth eggs detected, eggs of Toxocara spp. were the most commonly encountered, and mostly from the soil of footpaths. No eggs were recovered from the soil of school yards; the level of soil contamination was low in public play areas. Egg recovery rate of the soil to dogs' feces collected from footpaths was approximately 1:5. And the larvae demonstrated from the soil in the present study were nematode larvae, mainly recovered from parks.
