The City is reopening the temporary off-leash pilot program effective June 15. Applications will be accepted after that date.  Interested community leagues can go to for more information. 


Effective Saturday, May 16 Alex Decoteau and Paisley off-leash fenced dog parks are reopening for pets and their owners. Alex Decoteau off-leash dog park access will be restricted to a maximum occupancy of 15 people at all times. 

Manning Village will remain closed due to maintenance.


To reduce the potential for virus transmission, we are not providing bags in any off-leash area or fenced dog park. The City reminds dog park users to bring their own bags and to pick up after your pet.

Please continue to practice physical distancing when you use off-leash areas and clean your hands after touching gates or latches, as these surfaces are not sanitized.

Peace officers will be monitoring the off-leash areas to ensure people continue to follow physical distancing and maximum occupancy rules.

Community League Rink Off-Leash Pilot Project

The temporary Community League Rink Off-Leash Pilot Project is suspended for the 2020 season. We encourage residents to use any of the 41 open off-leash dog areas throughout the City. A full list of open off leash areas is available at
