Which Dog Parks in Toronto Have Dedicated Small Dog Areas?

Finding the right off-leash dog park in Toronto isn’t always easy. From choosing the right time to visit, to the terrain type, to the park’s size, there are plenty of factors a dog owner needs to consider.

Dog owners with smaller dogs may also want to look for dog parks that offer dedicated small dog areas to protect their dogs from rough play and larger dogs.

These dedicated small dog spaces are often dedicated for puppies or dogs under 20 lbs / 9.1 kg — making it easier for smaller dogs to play more comfortably with dogs of their own size.
