ABOUT THE PROJECT
Across North America, dog ownership is increasing. With the growing use of people and dogs in public spaces, and access to private outdoor greenspace becoming less common, the demand for off-leash areas in downtown neighborhoods is on the rise. The City is conducting a Downtown Off-Leash Dog Area Study to better understand how off-leash areas are being used, assess current and future needs, and develop recommendations for future off-leash areas.
Listening to and learning from the dog owners and users of off-leash dog parks will be essential in the development of recommendations and potential locations for new off-leash area locations. Feedback from this survey will be shared in a What We Heard Report, and used to shape future recommendations.
All data from the online survey has been collected and summarized in a What We Heard Report.
