There’s nothing better than a day at the park with your pooch.

Off-leash dog parks are a fantastic place for your pup to run around and let off some steam. It’s also a great way to meet new people and pets, and we’re pretty fortunate to have some excellent dog parks in our area.

We made a list of the best nine parks in and around Edmonton, along with a map to help you find them.

Terwillegar Off-Leash Area

This is easily the nicest dog park in Edmonton. There’s tons of open space for dogs to roam and trails to play in the woods. This off-leash area also has access to the river, making it the perfect place for a quick swim.

Deermound Off-Leash Park

Deermound in Sherwood Park is another one of the best spots around. It’s a wide-open space making it the perfect place to throw the ball. In addition to the main area, there’s also a smaller, fenced area that is great for small and shy dogs.

Wellington Off-Leash Area

This wide-open space on the north side is quiet and great for a game of fetch.

West River’s Edge Dog Park

This massive dog park in Fort Saskatchewan features 38 acres of fenced area, some dog agility items, and a swimming hole. It’s well worth the short drive up there!
