Dog Park and On-Leash Areas


Pursuant to By-law 135-10, dogs are permitted off-leash in the designated off-leash area of Sugarbowl Park, and on-leash (maximum 6’ length) in Lions Sugarbowl Park, Battle of Ridgeway Park and on the Friendship Trail.

Refer to By-Law No. 135-10 for further information regarding dogs in parks and on beaches.

Off-leash Areas

A favorite with our four legged friends, the off-leash Dog Park is conveniently located in Lions Sugarbowl Park at the corner of Gilmore Road and Central Avenue. Approximately 1 acre in size, the fenced park allows for dogs to play off-lease in grassy and treed parkland of undulating terrain. The park is open dawn to dusk, 7 days per week. Parking is available beside the Central Fire Station off Central Avenue.

Dog Park Rules:

• Please remember to Stoop and Scoop.
• All dogs must display current dog license and vaccinations tags.
• Please remain in sight and voice control of your dog at all times, within the designated 
Off-Leash Dog Area.

Don’t forget to renew your dog license. The Annual License fee is $40.00 for a dog not altered, and $30.00 if it is spayed or neutered. Licenses expire on December 31 each year, with a grace period of 3 months. After March 31, a late fee of $20 is attached to the price of the license.
