Residents are invited to view and comment on a proposal to construct an off-leash dog park in the city’s South End. Undeveloped land in the York Street north parking area, bordered by Paris Street and Boland Avenue, has been identified for the potential development.

City of Greater Sudbury representatives will host an open house on Monday, June 4, backstage at the Grace Hartman Amphitheatre in Bell Park. Residents may attend anytime between 4:30 and 7 p.m. to learn more about the off-leash dog park.

Residents can also visit until Friday, June 8 at midnight to submit their feedback online and view frequently asked questions.

A grant through the City of Greater Sudbury’s Healthy Community Initiative (HCI) Fund was originally approved for an off-leash dog park at Riverdale Playground on York Street.  An alternate location is now being explored. Existing fencing can be moved to a new site.

Development of an off-leash dog park to serve residents of the South End is identified as an action plan in the City of Greater Sudbury Parks, Open Space and Leisure Master Plan Review (2014).
