New off-leash dog hours in Fisher Park

You are here

Many of you have been waiting to hear about the requested off-leash dog hours for Fisher Park. After a long consultation with many comments received, it's been decided to designate the park to allow dogs off-leash year-round from 5 am to 7:30 am, and 8:30 pm to 11 pm. Dogs will be allowed on leash at other times of day.

Fisher Park was our park when my son was a toddler, and we spent countless hours on the play structure there. I'm comfortable that these hours are a good compromise that will allow all park users to enjoy the space.

New signage will be posted imminently.

The full staff report is available below in .pdf format. Drop me a line or call if you have any questions.
