People, Pets & Parks


The City of Prince George People Pets and Parks Program recognizes pets as legitimate park users and continues to develop strategies that accommodate the need off all park users while providing pets and their owners the chance to exercise and socialize in an outdoor environment. In order to meet the needs of all parks and open space users, pets are permitted under the following conditions:

  • Pet owners must clean up after their pet and dispose of waste in provided waste receptacles.  Pet owners must adhere to posted signs indicating pet restrictions.


 Check out the full People, Pets and Parks brochure by clicking on the cover image below.

   Bear-proof bins in Moore's Meadow are seasonal bins only and will be removed in the late fall.  For pet waste disposal and garbage, please use the bin at the Foothills Parking Lot or the bin off Dornbierer Crescent during the winter months.  Meadow bins will be replaced again in the spring.


Massey Drive - Ginter's Meadow

This area is located at the west end of Massey Drive, just off Ospika Blvd but can also be accessed from the west end of Ferry Avenue.  There are many trails that tie into Ginter's Meadow, as part of the UNBC Connector Trail System so it's a beautiful area to explore.  The Off Leash/Under Control Area is the meadow and perimeter trail only.

Duchess Park - Fenced Dog Park

The park is fully fenced and accommodates off leash use with a large open and granular ring trail around the perimeter.  There is also a separate fenced area for smaller or elderly dogs.  Both areas are accessed through double gated entries which facilitate easy leashing and unleashing of dogs.  Amenities include a dog water fountain and bench seating.  Access is via Ross Crescent or Melville Avenue.

Duchess Fenced Dog Park - History of Prince George's First Fenced Dog Park

On November 10th, 2011, Prince George's first Fenced Dog Park was officially opened at the new Duchess Park site.  Members of the former Off Leash Advisory Committee were on hand to welcome dogs and their owners to the new Fenced Dog Park:

"Today is a great day for the people and dogs of Prince George" said Kathi Travers, former chair of the Off Leash Advisory Committee.  "Our parks are for everyone to use.  It is up to all of us to make sure that our dogs are under control and to tell those who aren't being responsible to start taking responsibility."

The new Dog Park is fully fenced and accommodates off leash use with a large open area and a granular ring trail around the perimeter, along with a separate fenced area for smaller or elderly dogs.  Both areas are accessed through double gated entries which facilitate easy leashing and unleashing of dogs.  There are also dog waste stations to bag and collect dog waste.  Further developments will include a human/dog water fountain, trees, benches and other site amenities.
