Off-Leash Parks Open Saturday

More Places

For Rover To Romp!

This Saturday Rex and Rover will have two more places to romp without the restriction of a leash.

The upper dam at Colliery Dam Park (parking is off of Nanaimo Lakes Road) is open to unleashed hounds from 6:00 - 10:00 am.

Beaufort Park which is behind Dufferin Elementary school is another new off leash park for your favourite pooch.
