Sorry, no pictures for this park – it got dark by the time i got there and the pictures turned out to be very dark and useless.
It’s a new park with plenty of parking and the fencing is in very good condition. There is a giant message board by the entrance but what i missed was a container full of plastic bags. Also, the only garbage bin is outside the park so if your pooch poops in the far corner you have to carry the poop all the way back to the entrance, which is a big inconvenient but not a big problem.
There are many nice young trees inside the park and there is plenty of open green space for dogs to run around off leash.
Seems like that the park is bit far from everything unless you have a car (but don’t quote me on this because I’m not a Brantford resident and can’t accurately gauge distances).
One more thing: bring water – especially in the summer – because there is no access to water in or around the park.

Between The Goreway, The Gore, Queen and 407.
This is not an off-leash but a great secret park for dog walks. Parking is in the front entrance off of highway 50. There are some wild spots and some trails.
The signs posted around the park remind owners to keep their dog on a leash. I do I have seen folks not but in some of the wild spots I don’t want to lose doggy as he goes after a deer. (we saw one on a recent visit).
This is a great quiet place for a hike
Heart Lake Road / Bovaird View map »
Entrance if off of Heart Lake Road (to the west), follow the road into the parking lot. Dog park is right by the tennis courts.
No details yet…if you take a look at the map it seems like it’s a fair size park in a nice park with no high-traffic roads nearby in a residential area. If I lived in Brampton I’d definitely give it a try.
This is one of the three designated off leash parks operated by the city of Brampton.

Behind the Chris Gibson Recreation Centre. To get to the Off Leash Area, try to park at the east side parking lot.
No details yes:( If you get to it before I do please send in a review. Thanks.
Highway 410 and Williams Parkway View map »
Accessible from Williams Parkway East, park is on the North side just after you pass Hwy 410. Note: you can only enter the park travelling west on Williams Parkway.
The Bramalea Community “off leash” Park (BCP)has 2 areas – 1 for smaller dogs and 1 for larger dogs … like most parks, everyone seems to use the larger pen. The park is designed oddly on a hill. This causes obvious problems when the ground thaws or ir rains. Water and mud trough at the foot of the hill and elevated pavement and covered area where Tim Horton’s toting owners gather.
The off leash area isn’t bad … 3 stars. The best part of the BCP is non-off-leash area. There are many sports fields and a huge natural habitat re-growth area. After noticing many dogs and their owners walking the fence line that boarders the 410 Hwy side … I followed suit. While I don’t advocate breaking city ordenances … this walk is much better than the off-leash park. I have heard that city animal control sporadically patrols the park … I know of one owner who was given a polite warning. I’ve taken my dog along the warn fence-line path at least 20 times this summer and have have no issues … I trypcally go in off peak hours during the week and wekend. I don’t reccommend this walk while soccer and baseball season are in full swing … unless your dog is on a leash.
If you live in the Brampton area … it’s worth the visit.

Behind Canadian Tire between Sunnidale and Bayfield. View map »
The best place to park is behind the Canadian Tire just off of Bayfield Street or at the Dorian Parker Centre or along Sunnidale Road.
Rocky sent in the following info about Sunnidale Park – thank you!
The park is huge. It has 3 different walking paths and makes you feel as though you are on a hike with your dog off leash. The park also has an open area for running close to the front entrance. The people and dogs are great! The hill into the park is steep and the trail is narrow.
The City of Barrie’s website explains that this is the city’s first off-leash area for dog owners in a double-gated and fenced section of Sunnidale Park, a popular destination with dog walkers.
The Barrie off leash park is located in a natural setting, which makes it not wheelchair accessible.
More details about the Barrie dog park are on the city’s website. The photos are also taken from the city’s website.

What a great place to stop and let Ripper run. Our enclosed park with double gate entry is accessible. We have constructed a special protective ‘corral’ to ensure safety and allow participation. Parking is beside the gate for special visitors
The Bancroft leash-free dog park is new with the official opening planned for Saturday May 28, 2011 at 11 am. .
Our park is approximately an acre with a wood chip padded open field, a few obstacles and low, wide hill. The seating area is always shaded through the summer months and the park’s two and four legged regulars are a friendly bunch. We’re proud of our clean little park.
We are half way to Toronto from the south and Ottawa from the north. For Algonquin Park bound travelers, we’re the perfect spot for a final break.
East side of Industrial Parkway just south of St. John’s Sideroad. View map »
It is probably about 2 acres, fully fenced. The grounds are covered in mulch, with a few benches for people to sit and socialize. There are some trees and bushes down at the far end of the park. Double gated so the dogs can’t escape.
Bring your own poop bags, water bowls and water. There is a fair amount of parking, intact dogs allowed, no small dog area.
