What Is An Exclusive Listing?
Today we’re sharing our top 5 dog parks in Toronto! Stroll down the streets of Toronto on any given day and you’ll spot plenty of people walking their pups. Ever wonder where they’re heading? Chances are to one of the city’s off-leash dog parks (we promise they exist!). Whether you’re a devoted pet owner or are toying with the idea of becoming one, know that there are plenty of nearby parks where your furry friends can roam free. Here are our top 5 dog parks in Toronto:
High Park – 1873 Bloor St W
Within this scenic 161 hectare park sits a leash-free doggy zone dubbed “Dog Hill” that’s laced with walking trails. There’s also a drinking fountain for when your pooch gets parched, along with benches and tables. After all, what’s a dog park without an area to socialize with fellow pet owners?
Don Valley Brick Works Park – 550 Bayview Ave.
If the historic Evergreen Brick Works building is any indication, expect its network of hiking trails in the nearby park to be just as scenic. The off-leash dog area is a large fenced-in space located on the west side of the park. If you don’t mind a crowd, take your pup there on a Saturday and visit the weekly Farmers’ Market at Evergreen afterward.
Purina PawsWay – 245 Queens Quay W
While PawsWay isn’t your typical park (mainly because it’s entirely indoors), you’ll be thankful this large pet discovery centre exists come winter. Aside from offering pet seminars and exhibits, the building houses a 3500-square-foot dog park. Just make sure you attend one of their off-leash safety courses first.
Sunnybrook Park – 1132 Leslie Street
This leash-free and fenced-in area is located in the heart of Sunnybrook Park, behind the hospital and on the west side of the West Don River. It’s considered one of the city’s largest dog zones. Wander beyond the park’s designated pet area and you’ll find a network of pretty hiking trails that are definitely worth exploring (on-leash, that is).
Sherwood Park – 190 Sherwood Avenue
If you’re looking for an especially picturesque green space that takes you away from city life, visit Sherwood Park, located between between Eglinton and Lawrence avenues. The off-leash dog walking area contains a series of scenic trails lined with overarching trees that wind throughout the park. The trails are fenced in, but keep an eye out for any broken openings!
