Doggie Paradise

Share it

Riverdale Park’s off leash area, located at the very end of Carlton Street, is a virtual dog paradise. The field is large, open and away from any roads or danger. On Sundays the park is over-run with ball play where 4 or more dogs enjoy the chase. The area is actually a mixed use field for baseball, cricket and the occasional soccer or ultimate frisbee match. If the doggers had there way there would only be baseball and ultimate games in the space as the players of those sports tend to like dogs and even bring dogs along for the outing. The Insurgency applauds the Riverdale Off-leash area as a great first step in a comprehensive dog management strategy, but many more similar spaces need to be created to accommodate the growing population of dogs in Toronto.
