Dogs are great - we like 'em. We would like to ask all dogs to please keep their owners on a leash at all times while in our Parks. That makes it fun for everyone. Rrrrruff!
When enjoying our community's beautiful interlinking trails, please take care not to tread too much off the beaten path. This disturbs the delicate ecosystem that we are outdoors to appreciate. And, please cycle and walk your dog only where the signs permit it. Your Parks will love you for it.
