Long Description:
Certain parks in Guelph, Ontario are designated as off-leash areas. See Guelph's Leash Free page for more information as well as a list of other leash-free zones in Guelph. See City of Guelph off-leash map Ward 6 - Crane Park.

Crane Park is a relatively quiet natural zone. There's a brook that runs beside the main trail that leads to the Speed River. The water at the Speed is shallow and good spot for dogs to splash. There's a forest to the right to enjoy a quiet stroll. Bicycles and joggers also use this area but there aren't many of them.

I walk my dog here often. I like that it's usually quiet and that there's a variety of things to see (brook, meadow, river, forest).

Geocaches are nearby.

If you have a dog, photos of your dog having a good time would also be appreciated. If you logged a visit to any of the 3 geocaches in the area: Dog Cache, Crane Park 1 or Crane Park 2 that would be proof of a visit.
