Council decides not to proceed with creation of fenced off-leash dog park in Resthaven Park

After reviewing public input, Council opted not to proceed with a proposal to create a fenced off-leash dog park in Resthaven Park. The proposal was put forward for public input in November 2021 to potentially meet a desire expressed during the Parks Master Planning process to develop an off-leash dog park on the east side of Sidney. Resthaven Park was considered after several other proposed east Sidney locations were explored and deemed to be unsuitable. The decision concludes efforts to develop an off-leash dog park on the east side of Sidney.

The consultant’s proposal falls within the total budgeted amount of $180,000 earmarked in the 2022 Budget, with $50,000 funded through the Province’s Active Transportation Network Planning Grant.
