HRM will Host Meetings to Review Off Leash Parks

(Tuesday, June 10, 2008) - HRM will be hosting a series of meetings to review the monitoring of results for its five Pilot Off Leash Parks.

In June, 2007, Regional Council adopted the Off Leash Parks Strategy. During October and November, 2007, five pilot off leash parks were opened for a 12 month trial period. The parks (Dartmouth Common, Fort Needham Memorial, Hemlock Ravine, Sandy Lake, and Shubie) feature a variety of areas and times where responsible dog owners can enjoy off leash activities with their pets.

An HRM staff group, the Interdepartmental Off Leash Strategy Committee, is responsible for monitoring the parks. The public is invited to meet with Committee representatives to discuss the results of the monitoring during the trial period.

The meetings will take place from 7 - 9:00 p.m. at the following locations:
