Dog ban on beaches
The annual dog ban goes into effect today at a number of area beaches, including Willows and Cadboro beaches.
Dogs will continue to be allowed to roam the grass areas and pathways - as long as they are on a leash.
Pups aren’t allowed on the beach between May 1 and Sept. 30, the time of year when more people are hanging out on the beach and in the water.
Signs with maps are posted on site.
