Flood 2013 - Off-leash areas within closed parks are closed. This includes portions of Sue Higgins Park (Southland)
Calgary is fortunate to have 150 public off-leash areas in our multi-use parks for Calgarians and their dogs to enjoy. View the interactive parks map to find one near you (zoom in on the map to view the off-leash areas).
Please note that all City of Calgary off-leash areas are multi-use areas that may be temporarily closed for various reasons. The City of Calgary does not operate any dog-only parks (however, the Calgary Associated Dog Fanciers operates a dog park near Elliston Park).
The City of Calgary has three fully fenced off-leash areas in Auburn Bay, Falconridge and Sue Higgins Park. In the summer of 2011, Parks Foundation Calgary began construction of a fourth fully fenced off-leash area in Taradale (at the end of 64 Avenue N.E.) as part of Phase 1 of The Calgary Greenway pathway project.
