Off-Leash Area FAQ
If you wish to have a hockey pen designated as an off-leash area, you must work with the community centre on an application and follow the existing process:
As per the Universal Funding Formula Agreement between the City of Winnipeg, General Council of Winnipeg Community Centres and individual community centres, individual centres are responsible for all programming activities located at their sites. To designate a seasonal Off-Leash Area (OLA) in a hockey pen at a centre, the board must submit a written and approved motion annually by April 30 to the Manager of Parks and Open Space. Parks will ensure the CC is aware of their responsibilities for maintenance related to the OLA, and Parks will provide appropriate signate.
Once these conditions are met, and the designation of the OLA in the hockey pen is approved, the City's website, and Animal Services will be updated for the seasonal designation.
