The City of Charlottetown’s Public Works Department has been working with the Province of PEI to get permission to use of piece of land in Hillsborough Park for a new dog park.
The dog park, located off of Acadian Drive in Hillsborough Park, will open to the public on Tuesday, July 25. The fenced in area will offer approximately 12,000 square feet of open green space for dogs to enjoy off-leash activity. Signage with rules for the dog park was installed this week.
"The community has been requesting a dog park in this area for quite some time," said Councillor Terry Bernard, chair of Public Works committee. "We are so pleased to be able to offer this greenspace for local dog owners and want to sincerely thank the Province for allowing us to use this land."
Dog clean up bags and waste bins will be provided at the dog park, along with benches for park users to sit as their dogs enjoy their freedom. Play equipment was installed this week. The dog park will be open seven days a week from 8:00 a.m. to dusk until late fall.
