The first dog run in Beaconsfield was inaugurated on September 12, 2016. Located in the Luger Triangle, adjacent to Angell Woods, this 155,000 square feet area (equivalent to 1.5 football fields) includes a section for small dogs (height less than 35 cm) and one for large dogs. Built for less than $60,000, it is open seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m.
Dogs who wish to run free and satisfy their need for exercise must respect a number of rules issued by the municipality. Among them, dogs need to be healthy and have been vaccinated against rabies. Dogs who frequent the site must wear a valid licence, be obedient, sociable and not trained for attack and protection.
An association composed of Beaconsfield residents manages the dog run - The Beaconsfield Dog Park Association. Its mission is to help maintain an enjoyable off-leash park for dogs and their guardians to responsibly exercise and socialize their dogs.
