Seasonal dog off-leash program to begin Nov 1 in 2 city parks

Bring on the dogs! Ann Morrison and Optimist Youth Sports Complex will become seasonal dog off-leash areas starting Nov. 1.

All areas of the two parks are available for off-leash dog use, sunrise to sunset, with the exception of the Greenbelt, parking lots and roadways and playground. Owners are reminded to please pick up after their pets. This is also a good time to obtain or renew an animal license for your pet; both can be done by visiting the Animal Licensing website

The off-leash program is intended to help prevent long-term damage and address public health and safety concerns caused by geese.

To learn more about other dog-friendly areas in the city, see the off-leash areas website.
