Edmonton has over 40 off-leash areas that allows homeowners to give their dog the exercise and space they deserve. We’ve researched the city, focusing on green spaces and pet amenities, and have created a list of the top five neighbourhoods for dog owners to live in Edmonton.

1. Terwillegar Towne

Terwillegar Towne in the South West of Edmonton is home to Terwillegar Park, a dog friendly park located on the south bank of the North Saskatchewan River at the end of Rabbit Hill Road.

Buena Vista dog park is an off-leash area, and Laurier Heights Park and Sir Wilfrid Laurier Park are also great areas to go on a nice walk with your four-legged friend. You’ll find pet amenities in and around Laurier Heights as well such as Tailz dog day care centre.
