Do you have a four-legged friend who needs to blow off a little bit of steam and feel the wind in their fur? There are plenty of dog parks in Toronto, but how do you know which ones are the best for your pup?
Here’s our list of the 7 best dog parks in Toronto:
Cherry Beach – Port Lands
Cherry Beach is famous amongst Toronto dog owners for having the largest beach area of any off-leash park in the city. Does your dog love going for a dip? They are going to love this place! You can even enjoy the views of the skyline, all while your pooch enjoys their time right next to Lake Ontario.
Coronation Park – Niagara
If your dog isn’t as fond of the water as you are, then Coronation Park is a safer bet. Right on the waterfront, you can enjoy the breeze coming off the lake, while your dog enjoys the large open off-leash space! It is also one of the safest places to let more “adventurous” dogs off-leash, as the fence around the area is super sturdy.
Don Valley Brick Works – Rosedale
If you’d prefer to keep your dog close by on your travels, then the trails at the Don Valley Brick Works are perfect. This former quarry is now an urban oasis, and the Beltline trail is the place to go when your dog needs some exercise. In the mood for a hearty walk? This is where you need to go.
Monarch Park – Leslieville
Does your dog hate the idea of being fenced in? Monarch Park has a sprawling off-leash area that is not fenced at all. Plenty of trees and small hills define this space, which make it perfect for some adventurous – but safe – dog park fun.
Ramsden Park – Summerhill
Close to Rosedale station (for those pups who enjoy public transit), Ramsden Park’s sprawling off-leash area is a great place for your pooch to run free. The bonus of this park is the plentiful seating options for dog owners, as well as a handy doggy drinking fountain.
Trinity Bellwoods Park – West Queen West
An iconic Toronto park, Trinity Bellwoods features what locals call “the dog bowl.” Not only is it centrally located in the heart of West Queen West, but you can easily take a break by sitting on the grassy hill while your dog makes some new friends.
High Park – High Park-Swansea
Does your dog love going on hikes? High Park features an assortment of off-leash trails, so that you both can go on endless adventures. There is also a fenced-in dog park area, so your dog doesn’t miss out on getting some of that social time in.
