If you are a dog owner and living in Centretown, Glebe, or Westboro, you are most likely wondering where the closest fenced dog park is located. Granted, you can take your pup for a walk in your neighbourhood but sometimes they just want to run and play! Fenced dog parks are essential when you want your dog to run off-leash but still have control of the environment they are in.
There are two fenced in dog parks located in Centretown and their locations are convenient for those that either live towards Elgin St and Frank St or Slater St and Bronson Ave.
Jack Purcell Park is located on the corner of Frank and Elgin St, down the street from the Elgin St Diner. Jack Purcell Park has two gated entrances, the first gate allows you to prepare your dog to enter the dog park or if your dog needs a break there is a water fountain for you to use and a lower spout for your dog. The second gate allows you into the park where there is lots of room for your dog to play, as well as some shaded benches and able to relax at. The park is open 6am - 10pm year round and is closed 10pm-6am year round.
Tech Wall Dog Park is located on the corner of Slater St and Bronson Ave. This dog park has lots of room for your dog to run and play, there is a single gate access into the park and two benches at the entrance. The dog park is open year round from 5am-11pm.
Lansdowne is well known for TD Place, Whole Foods, JOEY, and the Aberdeen Pavillion, but did you know just behind Lansdowne off Queen Elizabeth Dr is a dog park? This dog park has lots of room for your dog to run, roam, and play and several water fountains at your disposal. The dog park is open year round, 7 days a week.
If you are driving west on the Queensway just after the Island Park off ramp is the Hampton Dog Run Park. You can access the dog park from Sebring Ave that leads into Parkview Rd. This large dog park is fenced in and is accessible 24 hours, 7 days a week.
