Off-Leash Dog Parks

If your dog loves to run, there are several great off-leash dog parks located throughout the City. These beautiful and large areas are a pleasure to visit for both people and pets. Please remember to clean up after your dog and remain within the signed areas. 

Please report unattended dogs to the Lethbridge Animal Shelter at 403 320 4099.  Click here for info on Doggie Bag Dispensers.

If you have not already visited these areas with your dog, please check them out - they are worth the trip!

Note: Rattlesnakes may be present in river valley parks from spring to fall, especially west side areas. Encounters are uncommon but if your dog has been bitten, contact a veterinarian immediately.

Peenaquim Park Dog Run
Located at the north end of Peenaquim park, at the base of the coulees.
Dogs and dog owners can choose to enjoy a fenced off-leash training area in the Peenaquim Park Off-Leash Dog Park. This off-leash training area is for socializing young dogs and dogs that may not be ready for being off-leash outside a fenced area. It is for use by owners and dogs who are playing and training together. The area is small so dogs can be caught if needed but has potential to be over crowed. Please be conscious about the number of dogs prior to entering.

West Lethbridge 

Popson Park Dog Run
Located in Popson Park between the boat launch and the picnic shelter.
Popson dog run sports 2 km of limestone pathways in its over 50 acres of river valley park space with easy access to the river for your pooch to take a dip to cool off.
