In November 2020, our dog park opened to the community of paw-rents and their dogs!
The off-leash area is 0.46 hectares (1.14 acres) in size, and the perfect place for both small and large dogs to lose the leash and run, jump and play.


  • Seating
  • Shaded areas
  • Water supply
  • Separate areas for small and large dogs
  • Secure double gate entry
  • Dog-friendly landscaping (grass and woodchip)

Please read the following rules before coming to Dogsview Park.

Here’s a fun fact:
In October 2021, we held our first-ever event at Dogsview Park: Howl-o-ween Unleashed (which was a huge success!). As a result, we now have an album with 150+ photos of adorable dogs in costumes on our Facebook page

P.S. Howl-o-ween Unleashed will be making a comeback, so stay tuned! 


Can I bring my kids to run around in Dogsview Park?

Children are welcome in Dogsview Park, however they must be accompanied and under the supervision of an adult.  As Dogsview is an off-leash dog park, we do not recommend that children run and play within it. Dogs may feel threatened or engage in play that may result in harm to a child. Use of Dogsview Park is at your own risk.

Does the dog park have winter maintenance?

We will have winter maintenance only on paved areas of the dog park. 

Does it get muddy?

There are certain areas of the dog park that may get muddy, especially after heavy rainfalls and when the snow melts.
