South End Off-Leash Dog Park

Niagara Falls Bark Park - 6025 Chippawa Parkway

Come on out with your four-legged friend and enjoy all that the Niagara Falls Bark Park has to offer! Designed for canines and their companions, the park offers two safe, beautiful areas for both dogs and people to socialize, exercise and relax. Paved, looping trails and gently sloping grassy areas allow for both leisurely strolls and more active play. Pet water stations provide fresh, clean drinking water and a convenient place to clean up before the ride home.

A variety of over 50 new tree plantings have replaced the old, decaying Ash trees. Maples, Gingkos, Locusts and other hardy, disease-resistant, native Carolinian saplings line the trails and will soon provide interest and shade on long summer days for years to come.

  • August 2018 Update: Grass and trees

    about 1 year ago

    Conditions have remained hot and dry, so we are planning to seed the grassy areas again and plant our new trees once conditions have improved, which will likely be after Labour Day.

  • Progress Update: July 2018

    The official opening of the dog park has been pushed back until Fall 2018.

    Extra time is needed to establish a strong root network in the grassy lawns here so they can stand up to the wear and tear of our four-legged friends for years to come. Unfortunately, the extremely hot and dry weather has been challenging our efforts this summer.

    Thank you for your patience and cooperation while we work to ensure this park will be a safe and beautiful place for you and your dogs, and a great addition to our City.

  • June 2018 Update: New Dog Waste Containers

    about 1 year ago

    It's stinky. It attracts flies. And those colourful little bags can't hide what we all know is hiding inside.

    Pet waste is one of the most challenging issues every park system and municipality faces. Regular garbage bins at dog parks would have to be emptied daily to combat odour and pest problems.

    So we're trying a new system at both of our dog parks to make them cleaner, safer and more attractive. Simply drop your tied, bio-degradeable pet waste bags into the bright green Sutera containers and walk away. Municipal Works takes care of the rest.

    Niagara Falls is the first municipality in the Region to invest in the Sutera Dog Waste containment system. The containers were installed in early June by the City's Environmental Services staff.

    Once a bio solid fuel centre is built closer to Niagara, this waste can be diverted from our landfill and converted to energy and fertilizer.

    Check out Sutera's video below and their website for more information on these modern waste containment systems and "Poop Power".

  • Progess Update Spring 2018

    over 1 year ago

    The City has made major advancements for the South End Dog Park. The two dog areas have really taken shape and only the finishing landscape and amenities are needed to be completed. As well improvements to the parking lot area have been complete and are in full service. The City is excited as are the residents, but we ask that the Public please refrain from utilizing the park areas until such time as the official open takes place. This will allow for the landscaping to take before your precious pets enjoy the play area.

    The City looks forward to inviting...
