Dog Park Restrictions in Edmonton

Times India Today | : Apr 23,2020 02:18 PM IST

The City has closed four fenced dog parks and is restricting 38 off-leash areas to on-leash only, until further notice. This action addresses crowding issues and promotes better physical distancing, which helps to manage the spread of COVID-19. 



Keeping dogs on leash reduces the potential for owners to have to intervene should their dog approach another dog or individual. This helps dog park users maintain two metre physical distancing, which is now a legal requirement in Edmonton and province-wide. 



City of Edmonton Peace Officers are monitoring the more-than-forty parks with off-leash areas. People who do not keep their dogs on-leash  are subject to warnings and fines. This restriction will be in effect until further notice.
