We can thank former city councillor Carol Disher, for this.
Disher passed away in August 2015 but she realized the need for off-leash parks in the region and fought passionately for them.
“Of all the areas that she participated in and volunteered, one of the greatest accomplishments was initiating leash-free dog parks in the city,” Port Dalhousie Coun. Carlos Garcia said.
As a result, a leash-free park at Burgoyne Woods was opened in December 2006 and more recently, in honour of Carol, The Carol Disher Leash Free Dog Park located at Catherine Street Park...
The dogs just love it! They can’t wait to get in there…
to play with their friends.
There is also The Niagara Falls Dog Park – the first leash free dog park in Niagara Falls, located at Fireman’s Park on Mountain Road and Dorchester Road.
