Our Top 5 Edmonton Dog Parks

Make sure to stop by one of our 5 favourite Edmonton dog off-leash parks on National Puppy Day. Cuddly and adorable, we think that every day should be National Puppy Day, but fortunately, you don’t require a special reason to visit a dog park. Taking your furry friend for a walk and playing is an excellent family activity. Multiple studies have found that having a dog in the household improves responsibility, immunology, physical activity, and emotional health in children. So join your favourite dog for some fun at one of these great dog off-leash parks! Brough to you by vet clinic Edmonton.

Mill Creek Ravine South – We love exploring the ravines, and there are so many wonderful trails to discover. We also enjoy the footbridges, since they are close to one of our favourite ice cream stands, Kind Ice Cream. Be cautious when visiting during spring melt season, as high, fast-moving water could be dangerous.
Location: Southeast Edmonton

Terwillegar Park – We love exploring the wide open spaces, exploring the big hills, and most of all, the opportunity to explore a lot of trails during the summertime. Even in the summer, the river remains open to dogs swimming and children collecting rocks and exploring on the shoreline. If your little one tires quickly, bring a stroller.
Location: Southwest Edmonton

Jackie Parker Park – Our dog enjoys having room to run and play fetch here, but she also loves exploring the woods through the trails. Both our children and our dog enjoy walking across the footbridges in the woods! We go across the parking lot to the playground afterwards for our kids to recover their energy. The Jackie Parker playground is a popular location and has a splash pad in the summer. Please keep in mind that dogs are not permitted on city playgrounds.
Location: Southeast Edmonton

Hermitage Park – Hermitage Park has a terrific paved walking trail for young families with strollers or for older families with children who enjoy biking. Your dog will enjoy all the space to run and play, including access to the river for cooling off during the hot summer months!
Location: Northeast Edmonton

Ted Hole Park – This is another great park as it caters to a variety of needs. There are paved paths for biking, a playground for the kids, and open space for dogs to run, play, and chase. As mentioned, dogs are not allowed on the playground.
Location: St. Albert
