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.
