  • Improve existing off-leash areas through better design, maintenance, and operation
  • Encourage healthy relationships between dog owners and non-dog owners
  • Elevate off-leash areas as spaces that provide a healthy, safe, accessible, and sustainable environment
  • Develop guidelines to ensure consistent maintenance and operation across Toronto
  • Develop design recommendations that can be applied to all existing off-leash areas
  • Improve community involvement and develop future ongoing partnerships

The survey is available here and it will be available until February 18, 2020.
