Join us as we take in an evening stroll at our local off-leash park! You do not need to have a dog for this meetup, you may just like to take a walk with us and our friendly dogs anyway!
We will aim to walk around 3 km at a ... pace. We will do 2 loops of the 1.14 km trail and some added twists and turns in the bush. I know many of our members have dogs and this would be a great event to get to know them! (many members love dogs too and dont always get a chance to get out and have fun with them)

We will meet at the off-leash dog park kiosk (starred above) and let the dogs play while we all arrive. You can park along the road, in a small parking lot by the kiosk or further along in another car park. There are signs along the 30 km/hr road to let you know where to park.
5:30pm - meet near the off-leash dog park kiosk - hand out lanyards, do introductions of members and dogs while the dogs run around the field having a great time!
5:45pm - start our walk around the park, varying our route on the second loop, walking along the river, through the woods and possibly visit the fenced in area so the dogs can play together and we can chat
7:30pm - time to head home
