Chemainus ballfield going to the dogs

Chemainus dog owners will continue to have a place to walk their beloved pooches during the fall and winter months after North Cowichan reaffirmed its decision to allow use of the Chemainus ballfield as an off-leash dog park.

The park will be open to dog owners from Sept. 1 to March 15. They will be subject to regulations according to the animal control bylaw. In addition, dog owners will be subject to fines if they do not pick up and properly dispose of their animal’s fecal matter or if their dog is found to be excessively barking.

As part of the recommendation, the municipality will also consider including a fully fenced stand-alone dog park in the 2012 Parks and Recreation Capital budget and in the Chemainus Town Centre Revitalization Plan.

The recommendations were approved June 15.
