Winnipeggers Asked to Help Shape Master Plan for Off-leash Dog Areas

November 11, 2017

The City of Winnipeg is seeking feedback on an Off-Leash Dog Areas Master Plan to address and respond to growing interest and demand for off-leash dog areas in Winnipeg.

In recent years, use of off-leash dog areas has significantly increased, and as a result, many of the City’s off-leash facilities experience overuse. This plan will address the needs of all park users and will develop a vision and implementation strategy for off-leash dog areas throughout Winnipeg.

The Off-Leash Dog Areas Master Plan will build on the City’s previously prepared Guidelines report, and incorporate additional research and recommendations informed by a comprehensive public engagement process.

Starting today, Winnipeggers are encouraged to go online and fill out both a survey and online mapping tool at Opportunities to engage in-person will be announced in the coming weeks.

A draft of the plan will be shared in early fall with the final plan submitted in April 2018.
