Dogs are welcome in all of Vancouver's parks and must be on leash unless they are in a designated dog off-leash area.
Dogs are only allowed at beaches with designated off-leash areas.
Dog etiquette in parks
You are responsible for the actions of your dog. You must:
- Pick up and dispose of your dog's waste
- Have a valid licence for your dog
Animal Control Bylaw enforcement takes place at all parks and beaches throughout the year. If you don't follow the bylaw, you may be fined between $250 and $2,000.
Red bins for dog waste
Place your dog waste in the red bins provided at select city parks.
