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.
