I wouldn't doubt it's just a matter of time before they spread out into the whole city. Here are the differences with dog ticks and deer ticks. Dog ticks are not carriers of lyme disease, only the deer ticks are.

I would suggest checking your pet and yourself after using the path. I know couple of cases of regular ticks being brought in from just being in the backyard of Beach homes.
