Great news! I have started a new website dedicated to dog parks in Toronto!
The new site is called Toronto Dog Parks (TorontoDogParks.com) and it already has a dozen parks reviewed with pictures and lots of details.
Visit Toronto dog parks to find info and pictures about off leash parks in the city.
North end of Carrick Street. View map »
The park is located on Carrick Street. Directions from the University are: Take Balmoral Street South towards the police station. Make a left on Central Avenue to Carrick Street. Make a LEFT on Carrick street (Kal-Tire is on the corner). The park is located at the end of the street with a gravel parking lot.
The off-leash park has been a great asset to dog owners in the city, as the only area where dogs can run off leash without worry of fines!
The park is not fenced in, but has natural fencing in terms of trees lining both sides. Dogs should have solid recall commands down as dogs can make it past the trees into the industrial area surrounding the park. Be aware that still water from rainwater collects on either side of the park which can be very messy for those dogs prone to water. Again, obedience training can come in quite handy with keeping your dogs clean when at the park!
The park has a pick up after your own pet policy. Please respect the park so we can all enjoy it!
40038 Fingal Rd., St. Thomas, Ontario View map »
he park is located close to the intersection of Sunset Dr. (north-south) and Fingal Rd. (east-west) on the western end of St. Thomas, near the Jumbo Monument. It is open from dawn to dusk, and the parking lot has space for about 20 cars. Please note: the address on Google Maps is 40038 Fingal Rd., St. Thomas, Ontario, even though the street address is 25 Talbot. St. Directions from London, Ontario: Take Wellington Rd. South to St. Thomas/Port Stanley about 16 km all the way to Talbot St.. Cross Talbot St. at the light and the road turns into Sunset Dr. (County Rd. 4) and go straight a short distance to the next light underneath a railway trestle, which is Fingal Rd. At Fingal Rd. turn left (east), and go up a small hill which will be toward the Jumbo Monument. About halfway up the small hill you will find the entrance and parking lot to the park on your left.
The Lions Club Dog Park in St. Thomas, Ontario is a new 4 1/2 acre off leash dog park created in December ’09. It is maintained by the City of St. Thomas and the St. Thomas Dog Owners Association (STDOA). It is fully fenced except on the creek side where the fencing will be completed in late May 2010. It utilizes the “Old Talbot Road” at the entrance of the park (see photo) and then meanders off the end of the road and trails into the park through the woods. There is a small clearing area in about the center of the park where the dogs romp and play. People can then carry on up a fairly steep climb back up to the entrance or go back the way they came. At the present time, there is not a separate area for small dogs.
There are poop bag containers throughout, a first aid kit, water is usually available, small trash cans scattered about and an assortment of stumps and trees to sit on. The park is still a work in progress having been open only a few months. For myself, a group member, it doesn’t give me “the stretch” I like when walking a dog, but the overall feel of the park is peaceful and delightful to visit. More information than can be related here is found on the website at http://stdoa.ca/, or you can email email@example.com.
Near the intersection of Lake St. and Carlton St View map »
If you are traveling south on Lake St., go past Carlton. Turn left at the first set of lights onto Russell Ave. You’ll go through one or two stop signs. You’ll see the park on the right, there is parking there as well.
There is a playground there as well. Once you park, you’ll have to walk across a field. This dog park is for all sized dogs. They recently put in a water tap as well. You should bring your own “poop-bag”. There are picnic tables and benches at both parks. And both parks have shaded areas.

St. Catherines, ON L2R 3V9 View map »
If you were to exit onto Westchester Ave (going towards the down town area) from Hwy 406, you would then turn left onto Glenridge Ave going south. You will then turn left onto Edgedale Road. Follow this road straight into Burgoyne Woods Park. Once you’re in the park, keep going straight. Go past the parking on the right and do not go to the left. If you go left, its a one way to leave the park. So go straight down and then up a steep hill. At the top on the right there is parking. Then it’s just a minute or two walk to the designated off leash area, this area is fenced in.
The first gate you pass is for the smaller dogs. To go to the area for large dogs, just follow the path and fence around to the other gate. There are taps for water in each area with bowls and kiddie pools. They sometimes provide poop bags on site, but it’s best to bring your own, just in case they run out. There is also a “port-a-pottie” near the parking lot for ourselves (thank god)
