Off-Leash Dog Parks

One of the perks of being a City of London resident is to enjoy the privilege of using off-leash dog parks. London dog parks have been a huge success and the LDOA is always looking for opportunities to create more parks.

Each of these dog parks is maintained by City of London Parks Department. 

 

Park users are expected to be respectful to other park users, all animals, and the park environment. 

All rules and regulations are enforced to ensure that all off-leash dog parks remain a communal space where dog owners and their pets can feel safe.

Rules and Regulations

Important Information

  • Dog park hours are from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.

  • All dogs MUST have up to date vaccinations, rabies shots, and licenses.

  • For the well-being of everyone, we do not permit:

    • Puppies under 4 months,

    • Female dogs in heat,

    • Sick, aggressive, or out of control dogs.

  • No glass containers, food, or toys.

  • All garbage is expected to be thrown out in the molluks provided (these are emptied every six weeks).

  • Please be kind and responsible, pick up ​after your pets. Our pets deserve a clean, healthy environment to play, exercise and socialize.
    ​Keep our parks and city clean.

  • Off-leash area users are subject to the Dog Owner's Liability Act.

Your Responsibilities

  • Leash your dog while entering and exiting.

  • If you are using a "pincher"/"prong" or "choke" collar for training purposes, remove safely and immediately upon entry to prevent injury.

  • ​Dogs who are required by law to be leashed and muzzled must remain so while in the park.

  • Keep your dog within sight and under verbal control at all times.

  • Do not allow your dog to chase wildlife.

  • Park users are required to clean up after their dog - kindly fill any holes your dog digs, and help keep the park clean.

  • Do not leave any belongings, including leashes, along the fence.

  • Note for parents: 

    • Please be advised that dog parks are NOT suitable for young children, as dogs engaged in play can be very strong and overpowering, potentially putting your children in harms way by being nearby.

    • If you do bring young children, you do so at your own risk.

Depending on the nature of the incident, contact either the London Police Department or London Animal Control & Care (LACC).
