Long Description:
The Heritage Green Community Trust Dog Park opened to the public in June 2015. It is the largest fenced leash-free dog park in Hamilton. The dog park was built on Terrapure’s closed West Quarry land. The new dog park is incorporated into a 56-acre passive park with a double gate entrance, seating areas, shade trees and a pathway. The passive park area includes 3.1 km of accessible walking trails (with rest areas and benches) that connect to the East Mountain Loop Trail, the Heritage Green Community Sports Park and the Heritage Green subdivision.

There are no lights or facilities at this location, except for a few lights in the parking lot. I have heard reports about coyotes approaching the dog park at dusk.

Visit Instructions:
To log this waymark, you must be able to prove to the waymark owner that you were at the park in question. This probably means a photo. The photo must be identifiably at that park, so having your GPS in the photo might not be a bad idea (alternatively you may include a recognizable landmark)
If you have a dog, photos of your dog having a good time would also be appreciated.
