Petition To Expand The Designated Off-Leash Boundaries That Currently Exist At Kilcona Park sign now

Councillors Jeff Browaty & Lillian Thomas
City of Winnipeg Parks & Recreation

The purpose of this petition and the Rally of September 26 is to show the public, City Council and municipal staff how many dog walkers use Kilcona Park and how much we appreciate it. As you know, there are so few places where dog walkers can exercise their animals off leash within city limits. This problem is especially acute for those of us with larger breeds. We intend to show Council and administration that we need much more space than what is currently allotted.
With more than 100,000 visits per year, we are the largest user group of Kilcona Park. We are also the only group that uses Kilcona all year round. The space we request is not high demand space - it is largely grassland, trees and mud trails, of which we are the only group that uses it in any significant number. For some, dog walking is their primary physical activity, much like softball and soccer are for the other primary users of the park.

The activities of dog walking, softball, and soccer can co-exist quite nicely. What we ask for is better signage that makes the areas surrounding the athletic fields a mandatory on-leash area at all times when games are on, and improved signage delineating the toboggan and model airplane areas. We'd also like more garbage bins for animal waste. Many trails become exceptionally muddy after a rain and during the spring melt.

We are not here just looking to be given things. We want to be part of the solution. The Kilcona Park Dog Club currently organizes a Park Clean Up Day each spring where we go through the whole park, cleaning up not just animal waste but also all other garbage. We have also fund raised for benches and bag receptacles. We intend to continue to do so, and wish to work with the City to identify priorities.

Should you wish to contact us, visit the Kilcona Dog Park facebook page and leave a comment. Please thank Councilor Browaty for all his support. Visit his website at www.jeffbrowaty.com

An estimated 400 dogs walk an average of 5 times per week each at the Kilcona Dog Park (these are conservative estimates). That is 104,000 individual visits per year and growing! We believe that makes dog walkers the largest user group of the park
