    Edmonton Off Leash Parks

    One thing for anyone who may not be aware, please be careful in the parks that have ravines... there is a growing number of urban coyotes in these areas and they have been feeding on people's pets... saddly there was an incident a few nights ago in the capilano area where they ganged up on an poor dog walking off leash... and all the city can do is post warning signs.

      This is a good heads-up. Not just ravines, either - top of the river valley too. I saw a coyote along Saskatchewan Drive in Belgravia (south of 74th Avenue) a couple of weeks ago.
      Almost always open to debate...

        Believe it or not, there's a woman in the Laurier Drive area that actively feeds the coyotes. Neighbours have been complaining to the city for years about it, but there's little the city can or will do, perhaps partially due to the fact that this person is married in to one of Edmonton's most prominent families. Several dogs in the area have been eaten or maimed by the coyotes that she attracts with her feeding.

          Maybe the neighbors who are so upset about this should just go tell her off themselves. Just cause she's part of a "prominent" Edmonton family doesn't mean she can do anything to her neighbors.

            Remember that the River Valley is a WILD Life habitat, use some sense when you and your poochie are out
            Still waiting for the Arlington site to be reborn .......

              Yes, common sense should be used... Apparently common sense is something this woman in Laurier Heights from the "prominent" Edmonton family lacks.

                Trust me, numerous people have taken her up on it. She's very old and "eccentric" to say the least.

                  Thanks for posting the list.

                  Now if all dog owners could just realize that ALL the other parks are ON leash parks! I am constantly informing / reporting people who use Rundle park as an off leash area. Yes the rule does apply to everyone even if you scoff or give me a dirty look - you are not above the bylaw, and your license plate is being recorded and reported.

                    ^ This is a pet peeve of mine as well and notice it in my neighbourhood constantly.

                      ^ stop being a dog hater.

                      As the owner of an extramly well trained dog, I can walk my pup off leash and you would swear she is on leash. To appease people like you I leave the leash attached and I just let go of it.

                        As an extremely good driver I can speed without causing accidents but the cops won't buy my argument when they go to ticket me.

                            ^ So basically, what you're saying is that you're somehow special and above the law? Or that the bylaw doesn't apply to you because your dog is well-trained?
