The Jack Darling Leash Free Dog Park (1180 Lakeshore Road West) was one of the biggest surprises of my spring so far – it’s huge. Approximately, 22-acres of leash free fun through forest, along paths, past ponds and a cement building along the shores of Lake Ontario off Lakeshore Drive in Mississauga.
Travel to Ottawa, Ontario with your dog and make a doggone great weekend of it – stay in Nepean at the Sandman Hotel – a boutique-style pet-friendly hotel along Hunt Club Road.
Not only is it a good-value contemporary hotel with fridge and coffee makers, it will put you at the midpoint between two awesome leash-free dog parks: Conroy Pit in one direction and Bruce Pit in the other, both run by the National Capital Commission (NCC), an organization established to keep the nation’s capital a quality outdoorsy destination. #dogtravel #ottawa
The Waterford Dog Park (32 Church Street) is a simple fenced double-gated area beside the municipal arena and two sports fields. The Waterford Dog Park is actually incorporated into the community recreational area, a noteworthy recognition that the pets are an important thread in community fabric.
