Create an off-leash, fenced-in dog park in Parc de la Savane or in another convenient location within the Le Triangle district of Côte-des-Neiges—Notre-Dame-de-Grâce.
A dog park is a designated area where residents can exercise with their dogs in a clean and safe environment. We want to create an innovative, well-maintained space open to all dog owners who will uphold the park’s rules and restrictions. We are asking the Borough of Côte-des-Neiges—Notre-Dame-de-Grâce to build a dog park in the Le Triangle district for the following reasons: - There is no dog park within walking distance of Le Triangle to accommodate safe, off-leash dog activities. - Many dog owners live in condos that do not have a yard where their dogs can spend time outside. - Regular exercise is great for any dog's longevity and weight control, and the overall effect of regular exercise makes most dogs calmer and better behaved. - Socializing dogs is very beneficial to the community, since it can mitigate aggressive behavior when meeting other dogs and people. - Building the dog park in the northern part of Parc de la Savane would promote better use of this land area along with the possibility of using existing fencing from the deteriorating baseball field. - The park would increase opportunities for residents to interact with their neighbors and help create a sense of community.
