Seasonal Off-Leash Dog Parks Open May 1

The City of Regina will open its seasonal off-leash dog parks on Saturday, May 1, 2021.

Seven of Regina’s outdoor boarded ice rinks are used as seasonal off-leash areas for residents and their dogs from May 1 until September 30. Visit Regina.ca/dogparks to find a location close to you.

Please do your part to observe all public health orders and maintain physical distancing outside of your household to help minimize the spread of COVID-19 variants. Here are some tips for using the temporary off-leash sites:

  • Maintain a safe physical distance of two metres
  • Avoid contact with shared surfaces such as fences, benches and handrails
  • Do not share any items such as waste bags
  • Use at your own risk
  • Stay home if you are sick

  • 14th Avenue between Edward Street and Montague Street
  • King Street between 15th Avenue and 14th Avenue
  • McTavish Street between College Avenue and 14th Avenue

 

Multi-Use Pathways:

  • Arcola Avenue between Pilot Butte Creek and University Park Drive
  • Albert Street between 23rd Avenue and Regina Avenue
  • Brinkworth Park from 13th Avenue and York Street to 14th Avenue and Edward Street

  • Hillsdale Street between 23rd Avenue and Broad Street

 

Further details on each project will be announced as construction begins, and traffic restrictions will be in place where appropriate.
