Off Leash Dog Park

Off leash dog parks provide a community setting in which people can gather and socialize while spending quality time with their own pet, at the same time observing the interaction of groups of dogs at play.

In 2011, the Town of Innisfail opened up an Off Leash Dog Park as a result of its Envision Innisfail initiative, and subsequent public workshops.

Located on the North East portion of Centennial Park, west of the cemetery.

Off Leash Dog Park

Features:
  • a fully fenced, spacious area for pups and people to interact safely
  • a combination of natural and groomed areas
  • complementary plastic bags for dog waste disposal
  • natural shrubs and trees, providing shaded areas
  • a thoughtfully organized staging area to introduce your dog to the park

Basic Dog Park Etiquette

Be Sure Your Dogs:
  • Have up-to-date licenses and vaccinations.
  • Don't chase the wildlife.
  • Interact well with dogs of all size, and people they don't know.
  • Will come immediately when called.
  • Are not in heat.
  • Are not aggressive or menacing to other park attendees.
Owners Please:
  • Keep dog on leash at all times outside boundaries of park.
  • Have a leash in your possession at all times.
  • Keep your dog in sight and under your control at all times.
