I find that if you are walking the... More

Awesome large park with trails and lots of dogs for socializing. I bring my dog here almost ever day. People are friendly for the most part and the dogs love to cool off in the river during the summer.

We love to take our dog down to Terwilliger so he can explore. In the summer he cools down in the river and in the winter he tears through the bush. There are always other dogs for him to meet and we've met some of the most interesting dog owners. If your dog is hesitant about meeting other dogs, this... More

This park is specifically designed as a dog park and mountain bike park. Lots of great trails that are both paved and unpaved. A summer morning ride along the river is what this place provides. Well linked to one of Canada's largest urban forests and kms upon kms of inter connected bike trails. Dogs everywere, obviously, so riders beware. Also... More

My border collie/lab knows where we are going 4 blocks before we get there. Terwillegar off leash park is his favourite fun place to socialize with dogs, swim in the river, and run through the trees. I call it doggy Disney

This incredible park area makes you feel like you are out in the country. The walking trails take you through an incredible wooded area, out along the river, up and down hills in an absolutely peaceful location. Whether you want to go for a walk or run, this is a piece of paradise in the heart of the city of... More

We come here often to walk our labs. It runs along the river with certain spots being fairly calm so the dogs can swim. Great spot to relax and chill out with your four-legged buddies

I think it's great the city has designated such a beautiful space for dogs to play and owners to walk in nature. There are PLENTY of other trails / parks in the city that are on leash or no pets allowed. Kudos to the city for allowing dogs this (miniscule in comparison) space and shame on the people who are...
