Dog Parks

Background 

Enjoy some off-leash time with your dog at one of the City of Saskatoon's Dog Parks. Dog Parks are naturalized spaces where dogs are permitted to be off-leash while under the control of their owner. This allows both owner and dog to enjoy exercise together while socializing with others. A valid dog license is required to access any Dog Park and owners should ensure their dog has up to date vaccinations prior to visiting the Dog Park.

Shared Spaces

Dog Parks are naturalized areas that share the space with wildlife such as coyotes, foxes, porcupines, beaver and white-tailed deer. If encountered, treat wild animals with respect and avoid approaching too closely. Please ensure that your dog is always within eyesight and under your control when enjoying Dog Parks.

The capture and removal of wildlife is made possible only with current and specific location information. Please call Pest Management (Mon-Fri 7 a.m. - 4 p.m.) at 306-975-3300 to report a concern.

Dog Park Development
Brighton Dog Park
 

The City of Saskatoon Recreation and Community Development Division has identified a District Park within the Brighton neighbourhood for the development of a new Dog Park. This development will take place as construction allows.

Chief Whitecap Dog Park

The City of Saskatoon is currently in the process of formalizing an off-leash recreation area within Chief Whitecap Park. 

Chief Whitecap Park is located south of Saskatoon at the southern most point of Saskatchewan Crescent, near Riverside Golf Club. The area provides a unique opportunity for visitors to explore three different ecological systems within the same area. At the top of the river valley near the park entrance, the area is comprised primarily of prairie grassland. As you venture into the valley working your way towards the riverbank, you enter a large area comprised of trees, bushes, and shrubs, many native to the area. At the very heart of the valley, visitors can access the South Saskatchewan River where they are greeted by soft sandy beaches and sandbars.  One formalized, Chief Whitecap Dog Park will definitely be a destination for any dog walker and nature lover.  

Avalon Dog Park Phase Two Expansion Update

Phase two of the Avalon Dog Park expansion project is scheduled to open in June 2019. In order for the expansion to open, the project must first meet City standards for the landscape development.  Lack of rainfall impacted the turf establishment and as a result further work will be required to complete the turf development prior to opening. The expansion area will remain closed until June 2019. We appreciate your patience as we work towards improving your overall experience at Avalon Dog Park.

Dog Park  Developments

The City recognizes the demand for Dog Park facilities and continues to identify spaces for dog park development.  In addition, the City has developed a Dog Park Application process in which people are able to identify and request a new location for a Dog Park. To request a Dog Park Application please contact Chelsie Schafer, Open Space Consultant at 306-975-7652 or chelsie.schafer@saskatoon.ca.
