Long Description:
The off-leash area runs from Castle Downs Road all the way to about 126 St, along the south side of 153 Ave. Please be aware that there IS a break in the park at 121 St.

This is a nice grassy area with large trees regularly along the path. It also connects with a green space and walking path that runs North-South just to the East of 121 St. There are few garbage receptacles, so please pick up after your dog and carry it with you!

The biggest draw back of this park is that there is no barrier between the park and 153 Ave - No fences or hedges, so it's not a good choice if your dog is not car-aware and/or tends to take off in random directions! I have walked my dog here on leash, however, and it's a great place for her to explore, sniff, and not annoy someone that she's doing things to their yard.

Part of the path has a sidewalk and would be suitable for strollers and wheelchairs. In dry weather, the rest is compact enough to be suitable for most wheels, but if it's wet/muddy strollers and wheelchairs might have problems in some places.
