If you live Downtown you and your four-legged friend finally have a place to run and frolic. Winnipeg’s first Downtown off-leash dog park is open. Located in Bonnycastle park along the Assiniboine River the new facility will offer something that has been lacking in the area.
“It’s great to finally open Winnipeg’s first Downtown dog park,” said Mayor Brian Bowman. “Over the last five years, two thousand more people have chosen to make Downtown Winnipeg their home, and it is great to provide amenities Downtown that have traditionally only been found in other neighbourhoods across Winnipeg.”
The new dog park is fully fenced and features artificial turf specifically designed for dog parks, lighting and park furniture for us humans to take a break on as our pets go crazy with their canine friends. In the summer there is also a bottle refill fountain. The design of the park incorporated existing trees and other park elements and additional landscaping was added around the park.
Councillor Mike Pagtakhan, Chair of the Standing Policy Committee on Protection, Community Services and Parks said that the new park ads to an energetic downtown where all Winnipeggers can gather and visit. “This new off-leash dog park is a great step forward in making Downtown living more attractive and accessible,” said Pagtakhan.
