This project will include adding natural boundaries, low profile fencing, and removal of noxious weeds to support healthy interactions between all park users. A contractor for the project was awarded in February and the planning and design concepts have been created. All are welcome to attend the Open House on May 30, 2018 to provide feedback on the concepts. 

As part of the City's weed management approach to the park,  goats will be visiting the off-leash area three times this summer. More information here


Background 


The Parks and Recreation Division presented an off-leash area/dog park management study, as planning for current and future off-leash areas is important in establishing a positive environment for all park users. 


The study included: 
  • Reviewing the suitability of the current dog park location after the research and consultation process has been completed
  • Consulting with residents, experts and other municipalities to inform the findings
In 2016, a survey and Open House was conducted to gain feedback on this space. Thank you to the survey respondents and workshop attendees for the amazing feedback that was received. Parks and Recreation took all the feedback into consideration and consulted with parks and landscape experts to evaluate the space and develop recommendations.
