  • Posted October 8 - Council Advisory -  This notice to dog owners - Council has received numerous complaints related to dog owners leaving poop behind as they walk their animals around town. Some users of the Dog Park are guilty of the same offence.  We are asking all dog owners to be considerate of other walkers by picking  up after your pet.  And it is not the responsibility of Council Staff to pick up the poop left behind in the dog park.  If dog owners fail to comply, once the area becomes a health hazard, Council will have no choice but to close down the park to all users.  Your cooperation is expected and appreciated.
