A. E. Wilson Park Off-Leash Area

The City of Regina is committed to increasing the number of fenced off-leash dog parks throughout our community. The City currently operates three year-round off-leash dog parks, and our goal is to expand the number of sites to better serve all areas of the City.

After analysis of parks and open spaces in the city’s northwest, a portion of A.E. Wilson Park was selected as the next off-leash dog site based on the following criteria:

  • Appropriate distance from:
    • Residences
    • Playgrounds
    • Open sports fields
    • Schools
    • Rail lines, and
    • Roadways
  • Access by main transportation routes
  • Accessibility for people with mobility challenges
  • Clear sightlines into the area to promote safety

In May 2021, the City reached out to nearby residents of A.E. Wilson Park to seek their input. With their feedback now incorporated into the design, the proposed park development includes the following features:

  • 1.6Ha (4.0 acre) fully fenced area for dogs of all sizes
  • Parking for 22 cars including two accessible stalls
  • Accessible asphalt pathways and benches within the fenced area
  • A paved multi-use pathway from 4th Avenue to the pedestrian bridge outside the fenced area
  • 65 new trees both inside and outside of the off-leash area
  • Traffic calming features in the lane between 4th Avenue and Oriole Place

Construction is expected to begin later this year. The project’s budget is $339,000.

The City is seeking wider community feedback. Take the quick survey to let us know what you think about the City’s selection of A.E. Wilson Park and if you plan to visit once constructed. Thank you for sharing your feedback.
