In the west Toronto neighbourhood of Bloor West Village, doggies will soon be able to run free in Beresford Park as of spring. Located on the west side of Beresford Avenue, the .24 hectare dog park will operate spring, summer and fall from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily for the local neighbourhood canines. Any dogs in an off-leash area must be licensed and under their owner's control either through voice or command. Rover will get a hefty fine of $240 for not having a license! The city's goal is to spread these off-leash areas throughout Toronto's many neighbourhoods. The city's policy prohibits pit bulls and female dogs in heat from off-leash parks. More west Toronto dog parks are set to open, with the largest one being High Park, still under review. The issue in High Park is the dog area versus environmental preservation. It's about the park's flora and fauna vs. doggies running free. Rennie Park in Swansea has also had a request for a dog area which will be discussed at a future public meeting.

 

Some of Toronto's new dog parks:

Colonel Samuel Smith Park

(RL Clark Water Treatment Plant)

Humber Bay Park West

 

King's Mill Park (south of Bloor)
