Off-leash dog parks discussed

NANAIMO – The City of Nanaimo is continually working on its facilities for Fido.

The City of Nanaimo is continually working on its facilities for Fido. The city’s parks and rec department is holding an off-leash dog parks open house on Wednesday (March 13) from 4-8 p.m. at the Nanaimo Aquatic Centre.

Dog owners and other parks users are invited to provide feedback on off-leash dog parks. It particularly wants to hear about the 2012 pilot sites – the forest next to May Richards Bennett Pioneer Park, the Northfield rest stop, Gallow’s Point on Protection Island, Wardropper Park and St. George Ravine Park.

Comments received during the public review process will help to determine future dog off-leash park improvements and additional sites.
