Dog Park - Reopened! - Aug 31, 2018


Please Note: during wet, rainy days, the park may be temporarily closed to help protect the grass.

The RiverStone Dog Park was constructed in 2016 and opened to the public late summer 2017.  This dog park is the first of its kind in the city and has proven to be a very popular destination for dog owners.  The popularity of this park, coupled with last summer's heat and this past winter's level of precipitation, overwhelmed the new grass. Since that time,  updates were completed to  better withstand with the intensity of use the park is seeing as well as incorporate some of the requests received from park users.  

These updates include:

  • Pockets of sod and additional hydro seed on remaining grass
  • An in-ground irrigation system
  • Additional limestone pathways and expanded limestone areas
  • Snake-proofing on the perimeter fence
  • Additional seating for dog owners
  • Additional garbage receptacles and dog bag dispensers
  • An enclosed area for small dogs

Located at the southernmost entrance to RiverStone, at the corner of University Drive West and Riverglen Link West, the park is 2.77 acres of which approximately two acres is the fenced off-leash area. There are pathways inside and outside the fenced area. Amenities include play equipment for dogs, water fountains for people and dogs to quench their thirst, accessible seating areas and pathways, doggie bag dispensers and a dedicated parking lot.
