The City of Burlington is planning improvements to the leash-free area at Bayview Park.
The planned work includes:
Engaging Leash-free Area Users
In August 2016, Bayview Park leash-free area users had the opportunity to answer an online poll about the proposed small dog only leash-free area.
The results of the poll were largely positive.
Based on the results of the poll, a small dog area will be incorporated in to the upcoming improvements to the Bayview Park leash-free area.

In addition to knowing when and where dogs are allowed off leash, there are some simple rules for dog owners to follow:
With the exception of designated leash-free parks and private property, all dogs must be on a leash and controlled by a competent person in the City of Burlington. When visiting leash-free parks, be aware that there are unleashed dogs at play. You are entering the park at your own risk. Parents should supervise their children at all times.
Animal Control bylaw enforcement takes place at all parks. Dog owners who do not have proper control of their pet or who do not follow the off-leash rules can face a fine ranging from $100 to $5,000.
Failure to clean up after your dog may result in a $100 Provincial Offences ticket, or upon summary conviction, a possible fine of up to $5,000 (exclusive of costs).
There are three city parks where dogs can run leash-free:
