TRCA parks offer a variety of places for you and you best friend to play the day away.

Dog Walking

Pets are permitted at most Toronto and Region Conservation areas; however, for the safety and enjoyment of everyone, we do insist that:

Pets are kept on a leash at all times.
Owners clean up after their pets.
Pets are not allowed in the visitors centre.

Pets are not allowed around the fishing ponds at Glen Haffy C.A.
