Summerland Off-Leash Dog Park - Community Consultation Phase 2

The work continues to find a suitable location for a year-round fenced off-leash dog park in Summerland. The first phase of the project resulted in a recommendation from Council (March 2020) to further explore four potential sites and collect feedback from community members and stakeholder groups.

The four sites include:

  1. Julia Street Community Church
  2. Living Memorial Park
  3. Powell Beach Park
  4. Summerland Rodeo Grounds
