    I like Dogwood park in South Surrey as there are a lot of trails and our lab likes the mud. (Tweeted too!)

    Derby Reach in Langley Township. Big field with trees and lots of brush along the sides. Also a small beach area for swimming. Spring and Summer evenings will see up to 30 dogs of all breads romping around at one time.

    I don’t know if it’s considered an official “dog park” but going to Sunshine Hills in ND is a good spot with an open field and it also has a small forest which is great!

    the dog park at Crescent Beach is great, because it comes with the bonus of being able to walk the length of the beach (although that part is leash on only 🙂 )

    I love the SunOka dog beach in Summerland BC, not in the lower mainland but BC nonetheless. Our dog passed away this winter after 10.5 great years, we are concidering another pet in the future, maybe this win would be the encouragement to make a new fuzzy friend.

    Dogwood Park is definately great, but Brookswood in Langley is also great for the exercise too (both the dogs and the owner!). Lots of open space and generally a good size group of dogs to play along.

    We go to th park in Saskatoon that is at the end of Broadway. Love going there because there is always dogs for my girl to play with. She was a puppy rescued from a puppy mill and my husband and I love to spoil her since the adoption 🙂

    The BEST dog park is in West Vancouver at Ambleside Beach. Our furkid loves it because there are lots of playmates, it’s sand (which for some reason she likes to role around in), and if you have a swimmer it is right on the water–labs love it. 🙂

    Another dog park is in Kitsilano near Vanier Park/Maritime Museum. This one is right on the water/beach and there are always lots of dogs and really friendly people. There is a portion that is grass as well. Cheers.

    It would have to be Lewis Park in Courtenay. The trees provide some wonderful shade, you can watch the eagles fly in and out of their nest and the occassional seal catch a fish in the river.

    Buntzen Lake off leash dog gated area, the rest of the trails it’s on leash. A must try for the Burbonites.

      I agree 100% , but at times the parking can be a zoo. They supply waste bags and a place to dispose of it. Never have seen a dog fight as all the dogs are too busy having fun.

    We go to Heritage Part in Mission. There are 2 areas, 1 for people and the other is ours. These areas are separated by a creek, for fresh water for the dogs. The dog area is a big field, that has been measured at 1 km per loop.There are a lot of dogs at all times of the day and friendly people with them.

    Railway Trail (unofficial dog park) is also a wonderful place to go. It is on the border between Maple Ridge and Mission, off Hwy 7 at Hayward Lake. There is a lovely pathway along the side of the lake and places where the dogs can swim. – Also there is Hayward Lake Dog Park. Dogs have to be on leash for about a 15 minute walk through the people side of the park. There are picnic tables at this areas. Outhouses at both areas.

    Its too bad Abbotsford doesn’t have a proper fenced safe dog park…so I go over to Aldergrove and they have done a great job…good parking lot, bulletin board, well fenced with good gates..separated into two areas…one is especially for the little dogs. A proper waste place to deposit doggi-do,a portable washroom, picnic tables and some shade trees. The dogs love it and the humans are comfortable too. ‘Yeah’ for Aldergrove !!! M

      I have a 7-yr old boxer who really does not well with other dogs. I think this Aldergrove area is fenced and no other dogs allowed until you are done?

    Abbotsford does have a new off-leash fenced dog park along with off-leash trails that border a salmon bearing creek along old growth cedars with swimming pools for the dogs. It is a green belt tucked in to a suburb on the outskirts. There are washroom facilities up past the sports park. It is called Bateman Park. But, by far the most scenic and diverse is Heritage Park in Mission, B.C. They have it all. Mountain views, off-leash large open spaces, fresh water and creek swimming for dogs and hiking trails.

    Bateman park in abbotsford is my dog’s favorite spot. Fenced area, fresh water creeks, deep pool for swimming, trail for a short walk… Little piece of heaven after work.
