Hello, my name is Ellie, and I am a 2.5-year-old Husky/Collie/Shepard. I will be telling tails of my experiences at the dog parks in Prince George and give you some insight on which ones are best suited for your furry companion.
Before I get started, here are some general rules about the City’s off-leash areas:
Corporal Darren Fitzpatrick Bravery Park: This is Prince George’s newest dog park and is located on Glenview Drive in the Hart. I like going here when I’m in the mood to play with other dogs. Furtunately, there are two separate areas so I can play with the dogs that are more my size and energy level. The park also has some great perks for humans including a skate park and playground.
Duchess Park: This is another park where I visit when I want to play. Duchess Park, like Corporal Darren Fitzpatrick Bravery Park, has two distinct fenced areas: one for big dogs and one for small dogs. This is a wonderful spot located near downtown, and even has a water fountain for us dogs! With a mini bike track and a fully accessible playground there’s mush to see and do at this park.
Moore's Meadow Nature Park: This is a great spot to hit the paws button and escape the bustle of the day-to-day. Be sure to keep us on-leash while on the park’s trails, then let us off-leash once in the open meadow. This is the best place in town to fully stretch my legs! There are a few different access points to get to Moore’s Meadow, Foothills Boulevard and Zimmaro Avenue are two of the best.
Ginter's Meadow: Ginter’s Meadow is the park I go to most often! You can access the off-leash area via parking lots at the end of Massey Drive or Ferry Avenue. This park has a paved path where my owners’ can walk while a chase rocks and sticks in the long grass or snow, depending on the season. If you take the path up the hill, you will find the remnants of Ginter’s mansion, and a seasonal stream to stop at for a drink. I recommended heading here in the morning or early afternoon, to stay in the sun.

Caledonia Nordic Ski Club: In the winter, I love heading out to the Caledonia Nordic Ski Club! They have approximately 8 km of dog friendly trails that are located 400 m east of the main facility. This is a great place to spend a winter morning or afternoon with your fur-legged companion.

If you’ve got a favourite spot that I forgot, let me know and I will make sure to check it out with my owner!
