Dog Romping

Looking to give your dog some socialization and room to run off-leash? The Tillsonburg Dog Park is conveniently located near the Tillsonburg Community Centre and is open to dogs of all sizes.

The park is open 7 days a week from 6:00 AM to 10:00 PM.

This park is intended for leash free dog exercise.  It is not recommended that leashed dogs be walked in this park.  Please remove your dog's leash in the double-gated area before entering the park.

Tillsonburg Dog Park Committee

The Tillsonbug Dog Park Committee worked extremely hard, with the support of the Recreation, Culture and Parks Department, to establish this park.  They are currently looking for volunteers who are interested in dog park projects to join the board of directors of the newly formed Tillsonburg Dog Owners Group.  For more information on the Tillsonburg Dog Park Committee at
