What are Pop-up Dog Parks?

The City installed temporary Pop-up Dog Parks in neighbourhoods identified as having a high need for an off-leash area. 19 Pop-up Dog Parks were installed throughout Edmonton in May 2023 and will close by October 31, 2023.

How were the proposed neighbourhoods and sites selected?

Neighbourhoods were selected for placement of Pop-up Dog Parks by their proximity to existing off-leash areas, number of licensed dogs, requests for the establishment of off-leash areas by residents and presence of off-leash dogs. 

Some of the considerations for the locations of the Pop-up Dog Parks were based on:

  • Availability and zoning of parkland
  • Adjacent land uses and setbacks
  • Fit within the overall park site 
  • Ability to be serviced by operations crews
  • Accessibility factors like the terrain, proximity to paved trails and sidewalks with curb cuts to access them
  • Lighting 
  • Sight-lines
  • Availability of active transportation options and parking
  • Presence of foot/vehicle traffic 
  • Feedback from the survey and the general public
What accessibility factors were considered?

Accessibility was a key consideration in selecting location and design of Pop-up Dog Parks including:

  • Terrain and park surfacing
  • Proximity to paved trails and sidewalks with curb cuts
  • Availability of parking nearby
  • Presence of lighting
  • Proximity to seating areas
  • Location and path to garbage cans
  • Positioning of dog waste bag dispensers
  • Design and installation of signage
  • Barrier free entry and gate systems

If you have suggestions for improvements to accessibility, please contact us at offleash@edmonton.ca.

What amenities, such as fencing, seating, parking, lighting, dog waste bags, are in the Pop-up Dog Parks?

All Pop-up Dog Parks have: 

  • Signage which includes the responsibilities of dog owners
  • Dog waste bags and dispenser, refilled weekly 
  • Garbage can(s)
  • Clear boundaries including either temporary fencing or the use of signs
Why are the Pop-up Dog Parks closed?

While the program was always intended to be temporary, we understand there may be concern among community members about the closure and removal of the pop-up parks. Administration will be presenting a report on the outcomes of temporary Pop-up Dog Parks in early 2024. While transitioning Pop-up Dog Parks to permanent parks or continuing pop-up dog parks as an ongoing program are considerations, a thorough review and analysis of the program, including costs, is required before further decisions are made.

Will the locations have access to off leash areas in the future?
