Distributed December 8, 2015

Dog off-leash area proposed for Nob Hill Park

The City of Nanaimo has received a petition and request from the residents of the Nob Hill neighbourhood to create a dog off-leash park in Nob Hill Park.

There are currently twelve dog off-leash parks in Nanaimo. Most were introduced as one year pilot projects. After the one year pilot period, a public re-assessment was completed before the current off-leash parks were made permanent by the Parks and Recreation Commission.

If there is widespread support for the Nob Hill location, a similar trial could be implemented by the Parks and Recreation Commission. If not, the park will remain as it is with a picnic area, trail and playground facilities. A survey is available online to determine support. A Public Input Session will also be held on Tuesday, January 19 from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm in the Vancouver Island Conference Centre.

In an ongoing effort to revitalize Nob Hill Park, and keep parks current with community demand, the City is considering adding a dog off-leash park in Nob Hill Park if there is clear neighbourhood support.

A survery is available online as well a Public Input Session is scheduled for 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm on Tuesday, January 19 at the Vancouver Island Conference Centre.

"We look forward to hearing from the community on the concept of a dog off-leash park in Nob Hill Park. Residents are encouraged to provide their thoughts by attending the public input session or filling out the online survey."  -  Al Britton City of Nanaimo
