City-Wide Study of Existing Dog Off-Leash Areas

October 15, 2019


The City of Toronto is running a study to find out how the City’s existing Dog Off-Leash Areas (OLAs) can be improved to accommodate an increasing human and dog population.

Due to popular demand, we’ve extended the hours for the Pup-Ups taking place before and after the workday.

All the Pup-Ups will take place within or adjacent to the Off-Leash Areas (OLA). Look for us under the blue City of Toronto tent at the OLA.

A complete list of “Pup” Ups can be found here.

Study Goals

  • Improve existing OLAs through better design, maintenance and operation
  • Encourage healthy relationships between dog owners and non-dog owners
  • Elevate OLAs as spaces that provide a healthy, safe, accessible and sustainable environment
  • Develop guidelines to ensure consistent maintenance and operation across Toronto
  • Develop design recommendations that can be applied to all existing OLAs
  • Improve community involvement and develop future ongoing partnerships
