Dog Parks

Enjoy some off-leash time with your dog at one of Lethbridge’s five dog parks. In these areas dogs can be off-leash while under the control of their owner.

Note: Rattlesnakes may be present in river valley parks from spring to fall, especially west side areas.

Dog Park Etiquette

Here are some guidelines for dog owners to follow while using off-leash areas.

  • Dogs must be on-leash in all public spaces in Lethbridge unless in one of the off-leash areas.
  • Aggressive dogs are not allowed. The behaviour of your dog is your responsibility.
  • You are responsible for respecting the safety of others in dog parks. 
  • Off-leash areas are located within shared park spaces. To avoid conflicts with other site users, keep dogs on a leash until you are past the marker signs.
  • Clean up after your dog.
  • Be courteous to all park users.
