Here’s a map showing parks in Stittsville and surrounding wards where dogs are allowed off-leash. Dogs always have to be under the control of their handler, even if a leash is not required.
This map is from list of parks from the City of Ottawa.
UPDATE: One of our readers asked about the status of the park on Hartsmere. Although the City’s web site (and this map) lists it as off-leash allowed, there a signs posted at the park indicating that dogs need to be leashed.
Roger Chapman chief of by-law and regulatory services explains:
As a result of a re-designation process undertaken at the request of the community, Trustee M. Curry Park, at 85 Hartsmere Drive, has a mixed designation.
Dogs are allowed on leash from May to August, Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to noon. Dogs are also allowed on leash from September to April, Monday to Friday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Dogs are allowed off-leash all other times. The signage is currently being designed and fabricated. The website will be updated to reflect the changes.
