Dog Parks Tricities Port Moody Coquitlam Port Coquitlam

Visit any park in the Tri-Cities and you’re sure to see a dog or four. We love our furry friends, and who can blame us? Dogs make wonderful companions for young and old alike. However, problems sometimes arise when dogs and people interact.

Dogs need to run, we all know that. In local parks and public places, however, human patrons take precedence and dogs need to be on leashes. To accommodate our canine friends, local municipalities have designated off-leash areas to reduce any negative dog and human interactions. These are places where your four-footed family members can run and frolic to their heart’s content, without breaking any animal control bylaws. There are many dog parks to choose from locally, and we’ve compiled an updated list for you.

Coquitlam

  • Miller Park, eastern portion [map]
  • Mundy Park, in the fenced off-leash area or on designated trails only from dawn to 10:00am daily [map]

* Dogs defined as “vicious” in Coquitlam’s Animal Bylaw, including all pitbull and pitbull cross breeds, are prohibited from being off-leash even in designated off-leash areas.

Wherever you go, off-leash or on, you should always clean up after your pet, and properly dispose of the waste.

  1. Just one tip – people should keep their dogs out of the creeks and estuaries between now and April. The salmon are returning to spawn and a scare, such as a dog in the water, can mean the loss of up to 3,500 eggs. They may also crush the salmon eggs and stir up sediment which degrades the water quality.
    People with questions can email the Port Moody Ecological Society or drop by our Noons Creek Hatchery any Saturday between 9am and 11am and speak with one of our volunteers. We also have treats for dogs !

  2. Hey there, thanks for this list! Is there an address for Ridge Park?
