Opposing the Closure/Relocation of the Osoyoos Off-Leash Dog Park - SUCCESSFUL

This petition had 478 supporters


The Osoyoos Off-Leash Dog Park was created by the Town of Osoyoos in the Summer of 2012. It had been celebrated and well used in the past 5 years! 

At the Osoyoos Off-Leash Dog Park there is ideal parking, maintence, space for large and small breeds of dogs, some shade and a water source.  It's is also away from children/playground, as well as roads or loud noises. 

It is like it's own little community within Osoyoos B.C. People there support one another, keep one another updated about visits/things happening, and share personal connections with one another.  It's an amazing place to meet locals as well as tourists/people visiting from out of town! 

In June 2017, the Osoyoos Minor Baseball Association proposed that the Dog Park be closed and relocated to make space for the teams/tournaments. The potential replacement Off-Leash Dog Park would be at Kismen Park (across from Rattlesnake Canyon), which is a Dog Park/Children's Playground, this is great for people who bring their children as well. Unfortunately this space is not well kept as there is dog feces left often, there are children playing there, making it unsuitable for people who have large dogs/don't know children. It's almost an accident waiting to happen with the amount of people/dogs that currently use the Osoyoos Off-Leash Dog Park. 

Currently there is a written petition binder at the Osoyoos Off-Leash Dog Park opposing the closure/relocation:
