As parts of the province slowly restart, the City of Vancouver has reopened a number of off-leash dog parks to the public.

Seven of Vancouver’s fenced off-leash areas were closed on March 25, due to challenges surrounding safe physical distancing.

The following dog parks have since reopened:

While the City is excited to welcome back humans and canines alike, park-users are reminded to constantly wash and sanitize their hands, especially when opening any gates.

Earlier this month, the provincial government outlined its plan to reopen sectors throughout the province that have been closed as a result of the ongoing pandemic.

Parks, beaches, and outdoor spaces are tentatively scheduled to open during mid-May, alongside personal establishments, restaurants, worksites, and transit services, among others.

A broader reopening of parks, including some overnight camping, will take place in June, should British Columbia continue to minimize the spread of the virus.
