The Town of Georgina has two leash-free dog parks.
One is located at 685 Lake Dr. S.
The second is located in front of the Georgina Animal Shelter and Adoption Centre at 26815 Civic Centre Road Rd. It has a small dog park area and a large dog park area, as well as shade structures.
These dog parks provide wonderful spaces for your dogs and the community.
If you have questions or comments about the dog park, contact Service Georgina at 905-476-4301, ext. 3001.

Dog park etiquette
Dog handlers should exhibit courteous behaviour at all times. There are simple things you can do to keep the park enjoyable for pets and persons alike:
- Pay attention to your dog at all times.
- It is suggested that you do not leave a leash on your dog while in the park. However, there may be some situations where a dog will be leashed.
- Don't overreact to normal rough and tumble dog play. Being overprotective can make your dog nervous.
- Respect the separate large and small dog areas.
- If your dog is exhibiting pestering or bullying behaviour, please remove your dog from the park.
- Keep in mind that outside of the park gates, all leash by-laws apply.
