[ARCHIVED] Temporary Off-Leash Dog Park

Temporary Dog Park News

The Town of Banff has installed a temporary Off-Leash Dog Park near the permanent dog park at the Rec Grounds.

The permanent dog park was closed for the annual dry-out period in the spring, but it was decided to extend this closure due to a proliferation of foxtail weed. Embedded foxtail seeds can lead to serious infection for your dog.  The safety of all residents, including pets, is a priority.

The temporary dog park is important to offer off-leash exercise for the health and well-being of dogs and their owners. The objective is to reopen the permanent Off-Leash Dog Park later this summer.

Closing the dog park will allow for sod rehabilitation to naturally subdue the spread of foxtail. Keeping the dog park closed for a period of time will also allow for safe, targeted application of herbicide.  We understand the frustration with this closure and we are working diligently towards longer-term solutions.
