    Cordova Valley Park provides a number of active and passive recreational opportunities for all ages and includes a playground and sports fields.

Background

The City’s first off-leash dog area opened in 2007 and is a 10-heactre off-leash area within Harmony Valley Park (915 Grandview St. N.).

In September 2016, community members requested the City consider a second off-leash dog area to be situated south of Highway 401.

The request was reviewed along with available parkland and open spaces and in keeping with the City’s Guidelines for Design and Placement of Off-leash Areas. To learn more, view the Report and guidelines.
