Off-Leash Area Locations

St. Albert is fortunate to have many designated off-leash areas where dogs and their owners can meet, exercise and socialize.

On this page, you’ll find details on the City’s three different types of designated off-leash areas as well as view locations of where to take Fido for off-leash fun.

To ensure St. Albert’s designated off-leash areas are safe and comfortable for all, guidelines need to be followed as per the Animal Bylaw 11/2013.  Always ensure you know the boundaries of the off-leash area. When entering or leaving the boundaries of an off-leash area, all dogs must be on a leash.

Remember, some dogs are not ready for the excitement of off-leash areas. Make sure you know when your dog is becoming uncomfortable, overwhelmed or excited.


Map of Designated Off-Leash Areas

The Salisbury Park off-leash area is closed due to the Sturgeon Heights Reservoir Replacement and Decommissioning. Residents are encouraged to explore alternate off-leash locations nearby such as: Attwood Park, Alpine Park, Braeside Park, Flagstone Park and Grenadier Park.

Off-leash use is still permitted in the boarded outdoor rink when the ice is out. Construction is anticipated to complete in 2024.

Off-Leash Dog Parks

St. Albert has two off-leash dog parks, which are larger, fully-fenced areas designed specifically for dogs. They include Dodger Dog Park, and Lacombe Lake Dog Park, which also includes a small dog area for dogs weighing 11 kg (25 lbs) and under.

Off-Leash Sites

Off-leash sites are designated open green space areas located in parks throughout St. Albert. These are available for dogs when not in use for organized sporting activities that have been scheduled and authorized by the City.

Reminder, not all open green spaces in the City are designated as off-leash sites.

Off-Leash Boarded Rinks

Boarded rinks used for skating in the winter are available for dogs to have off-leash fun from spring to fall.
