Off-leash areas are formally designated areas where dog owners can release their dogs from all forms of constraint and allow them to move about freely for exercise and/or socialization with other dogs and people. All off-leash areas are subject to rules and regulations that protect people, pets, and property.
There is a year round off-leash area behind (north of) the eastern segment (Safeway to Staples) of the Cornerstone Development at 6800-48 Avenue. It can be accessed by driving to the back of the stores and parking in the designated area. The area is not fenced, but new developments immediately adjacent to the off-leash property will result in some perimeter fencing. Springwood Developments, the owner of the Cornerstone property that provides access to the site, supports the off-leash designation and has granted permission for dog owners to use the specified parking area behind the stores (with some conditions).
The Camrose Golf Course is open as a seasonal (winter) dog off-leash area. This is a multi use area largely maintained by volunteers, and respecting other users and their chosen activities will ensure its future availability for these activities. The 'south nine' has been designated as a trial dog off-leash area over the winter period. It is important that the posted guidelines and rules are followed if this trial is to be successful.
The seasonal area and trails in the Stoney Creek Valley are now closed.
The rules pertain to both trial and permanent off leash areas.
Location and Information The winter dog off-leash area is located at the Camrose Golf Course, 5106 - 66 Street, Camrose.
