Off-Leash Dog Areas

The Downtown Off-leash Dog Area and the Shaughnessy Off-leash Dog Park Area are the only public spaces in the City of Port Coquitlam where dogs may be off-leash. These areas are intended to diminish off-leash conflicts in other parks. For more information about the City’s leash laws, click here.Map - Downtown Dog Off-leash Area

Future Plans
The Parks and Recreation Department has recognized the need for additional off-leash areas in Port Coquitlam. Sites in Citadel Heights and in north-east Port Coquitlam are being considered for future off-leash areas as funds become available in the next few years.

Until further off-leash areas are developed, owners may face enforcement under the Animal Control Bylaw if they allow their dogs to go off-leash in any public space other than the two designated dog off-leash areas.
