As of November 1, 2011 HRM will be opening up and allowing dogs off leash in quite a few sport fields in the area. The fields have off leash hours of 5am to 10pm until May 1, 2012.
HRM notes that this program is dependent on us as responsible dog owners, so please remember to keep your dog leashed if other people are using the field and to always clean up after your pet. Most of the fields have Practica Poop bags on site. Check out HRM field rules.
Some HRM Parks do not allow off leash activities and some don’t allow dogs at all. Please look for the appropriate signs.
