Our guide to the best dog parks in Guelph

May 31, 2016

Treat your pup to some off-leash time outdoors this Spring. For today’s post, the Timbercreek Communities blog team is featuring a few of the best dog parks near Guelph apartments.

Centennial Park

For the dog who is unbearably anxious to get outdoors, Centennial Park (377 College Avenue West) is only about a five-minute walk away from Vanier Court Apartments (27 and 40 Vanier Drive). The off-leash zone at this local park is just west of the tennis area and north of the baseball diamond.

Riverside Park

Known for being a great place to host events, Riverside Park (709 Woolwich Street) has something for eveDepositphotos_22381129_s-2015ryone -- including your dog. From the scenic Floral Clock and Rock Gardens to a children’s playground, carousel, pedal boats and more, plan a full day with the family and your pet here. The leash-free zone is located on the east side of the scenic Speed River. Riverside Park is a 10-minute drive from Vanier Court Apartments.

Crane Park

Crane Park (96 Dovercliffe Road) is scenic and quiet, a beautiful place to take your dog, especially in the Spring. Follow the flowing brook to find the Speed River, which marks the edge of this nature area. This off-leash area at Crane Park is about a 20-minute walk or four-minute drive from Vanier Court Apartments.

Eramosa River Park

Vanier Court Apartments is just over a five-minute drive from Eramosa River Park (259 Victoria Road South). The off-leash area at this park is located on the east end, near Victoria Road. After your dog has had some time to run and play, consider leashing up and heading out onto the Eramosa River Trail, which connects here.

Timbercreek Communities encourages you and your dog to explore one of these dog-friendly spots in the neighbourhood. For more information about Guelph apartments, visit our website today.
