Children playing in CapilanoCommunityPark and on the sports fields have been having some nasty encounters with dog POOP, which is not healthy, safe or sweet smelling.
City Bylaws govern responsible dog ownership. Dogs are to be kept away from playgrounds, sports fields, school grounds and golf courses. A dog may be on parkland so long as the dog is leashed and on an improved trail or unimproved trail; leashed and on a boulevard; leashed and in an area governed by signage permitting dogs; or in an off-leash area. Dogs must be kept at least 10 metres from any playground or picnic site. Generally, whenever dogs are off the property of their owner they must be on a leash not exceeding two metres in length and under control.
