Dog Run at Union Park, located at Aquitaine and Tenth Line in Mississauga, ON

There is a sign at this dog park stating that it is a "Temporary Dog Walking Area", and will be removed in 2022. 

We understand this is a few years away, but the park planning is happening now, and we want the City to know how we feel.  A Fire Station will be built at this location beginning 2022 and ending 2024, and we were advised when it is completed in 2024, the City will look at re-adding the dog run in the same area. This is a long time without the Dog Run, at least 2 years!

After 2024, if it is relocated in the same park, then environmental studies would have to be done on the land which will take even longer.  The City's Park Planning department advised "Once the environmental studies, and if necessary, remediation is completed, the City will then lease the lands from Union Gas and create a new leash-free zone in this area. The timing for the new leash-free zone is still to be determined".

Our community would like to make this dog run a permanent social site for our amazing dogs.  At the very least, we would like to have another Dog Run placed in the area before 2022, so there is no interruption to our dogs' routines and social lives. There are no dog runs in our immediate area for our large group, and this park serves as a wonderful place for our dogs. This dog run has brought the dog owners in our neighbourhood together, and serves as a wonderful place for our pets to socialize and interact, something that is very important for their wellbeing.

We need to make the Dog Run permanent or replace it in the area before 2022. 

Please help us in this endeavour.
