Dog off-leash area proposed for Nanaimo’s Nob Hill Park

NANAIMO – Nob Hill residents petition city to create dog off-leash area in Nob Hill Park.

Nob Hill Park could be going to the dogs after Nob Hill neighbourhood residents sent a petition to the city to create a dog off-leash area in the park.

There are currently 12 dog off-leash parks in Nanaimo, mostly introduced as one-year pilot projects that were re-assessed and given permanent status by the Parks and Recreation Commission following their one-year trial periods.

A similar trial could be implemented at Nob Hill Park if there is widespread support for the location, otherwise the park will remain as is with a picnic area, trail and playground facilities.

A survey to gauge support for a dog off-leash area is available online and a public session will also be held Jan. 19 from 4-7 p.m. in the Vancouver Island Conference Centre.

To learn more and see a map of potential dog off-leash park options, please visit the city website at http://bit.ly/1lsg2ly.
