Residents and visitors are encouraged to take advantage of local off-leash parks in Greater Vernon.

Look for signs, bag dispensers and receptacles at each dog park.

In Greater Vernon’s mixed use parks that permit dogs, such as Marshall Fields, dog owners are asked to keep their dogs on-leash.

“It is about ensuring the safety of all users, while balancing the recreational needs of the community.”

Please enjoy your visit to the dog park:

  • Supervise children at all times.
  • Keep dogs under control at all times.
  • Clean up after your dog immediately, and dispose of waste properly.
