Dog Parks–What Are They?
An “off leash area” means any area designated by a governing body within which dogs, under the effective control of their owners, keepers or guardians, may be off leash.
Off leash dog areas:
Provide an opportunity for dogs to exercise and socialize;
Vary in size and characteristics and have different terrains;
Have amenities that make it clear that dogs are invited, not just permitted;
May include pathways, benches or picnic tables.
