Leash Free area

Bronte Creek Provincial Park - little known facts

Leash Free area

Oakville, Ontario L6M, Canada

Created By: Bronte Creek Provincial Park


One of two areas in the park where pet owners are allowed to have dogs off leash. Before taking your dog to the leash free area be sure that they are vaccinated and have good recall (will come back to you when you call them). Well behaved dogs only.

Area can be wet and muddy at certain times of the year - please consider other leash free parks during these times as we are maintaining this area as naturally as possible.

Little Known Fact: The accumulation of dog poop can attract coyotes. Please be a responsible pet owner and clean up after your pet even if they "make a deposit" off trail. Please pick it up and throw it out in the garbage cans provided near the parking area.

Parks and Protected area: This leash free area was established in 2002 after the campground opened and in response to the rising number of dog off leash issues the park was having. An area was provided so that pet owners could allow their dogs to exercise leash free while the park maintained the dog on leash rule in all other areas of the park.

For health and safety purposes, all domestic animals must be kept under control, and on a leash not exceeding two metres at all times, except in designated leash free areas. Under the Public Health Act, pets are not allowed in swimming areas or on the beach at any time. You must clean up after your pet.
