Leash-Free Parks

GTA - Central

Different parks have different rules, which are usually posted. Make sure you observe the Rules and Hours of the Parks. Some can change according to the season. The different groups that operate and maintain the park areas are very strict about the Rules. This helps ensure the safety of you and your pets.

Some of the Parks also have "Membership Fees" to help keep the parks going and allows for improvements.
