Off Leash Dog Parks
Dog owners have access to three off-leash parks in London, Ontario to exercise and socialize with their furry family member. Off-leash areas are clearly delineated by fencing or boundary signs.
Hours: They are open year round, from 6am until 10pm (or dusk).
Rules of the Off-Leash Area
To keep the park in good condition for all to enjoy, users are required to respect the following rules (directly from the Off-Leash Park site):
- All Dogs MUST have up to date vaccinations, rabies shots and license tags required

- Leash your dog while entering and exiting
- Keep your dog within sight and under verbal control
- Clean up after your dog
- Do not allow your dog to chase wildlife
- No puppies under 4 months, female dogs in heat, sick dogs or aggressive dogs
- Dogs required by law to be leashed and muzzled must remain so while in the off-leash area
- No glass containers, food or toys
- Children MUST be supervised by an adult AT ALL TIMES
- Parents are advised this site is NOT suitable for young children

The information about these off-leash parks came from the London Dog Owners Association (LDOA). The LDOA is our community partner in developing new off-leash areas and taking care of the existing dog parks. Their Watch Dog team of dedicated volunteers keeps an eye on what goes on in the parks, whether it is to remind users of the rules, or notify the City about garbage pick-up. They also organize an annual spring cleanup in each of the parks as well as various dog-related events throughout the year.
