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.

  1. It shows that corner of Elm and Bell is off leash – should the icon maybe be moved to where the trail is?

    1. Thanks Angie. Some of the data points are hard to place when the municipal addresses don’t match exactly – thanks for the heads up on this one.
