Dog Parks

Saint John has four off-leash dog parks across the City. Dog owners are reminded to respect the rules of the parks by keeping their dogs leashed unless they are within the designated off-leash area. All owners must pick up after their dogs, and properly dispose of their refuse. For your convenience, City dog parks offer dog bag dispensers and garbage cans and pole baskets. 

Rockwood Park

City By-law dictates that unless you are in a designated off-leash area, your dog must remain on a leash at all times. This By-law is enforced by fines, and offences are recorded.

If a person has been bitten by a dog, or if there’s an altercation with dog owners, contact the Saint John City Police.
