Dogs off-leash areas allow dogs to socialize and run free while allowing for proper drainage, so parks can keep looking their best. Dogs are to remain leashed in other areas of parks or the dog owner/walker will be subject to a fine of $365. Help keep everyone safe – including your dog!
Before going to an off-leash area, users must do the Ontario Ministry of Health COVID-19 customer screening and if they do not pass the screening, they should not use the off-leash area. Learn more about using off-leash areas in the Dog Parks section of COVID-19: Information for Being in Public Places – Being Active and Getting Outdoors.
Fountains and water bottle filling stations may be closed. Bring your own pre-filled water bottles.
Off-leash areas are not cleaned and disinfected, including but not limited to:
The City has Green Bins for organic waste in all dog off-leash areas in parks, other select locations in parks and a few street litter bins that accept dog waste across the city. In parks that do not have a Green Bin, dispose of dog waste in garbage bins or take it home to dispose of in your own Green Bin. Any bag can be used as the bags are removed at City organics processing facilities.
