Announcing a new Meetup for The Edmonton Off Leash Dog Recreation Meetup Group!
What: Strathcona Off Leash Park
When: September 29, 2009 6:30 PM
Strathcona County Offleash
Corner of Hwy 21 and Township Road 522
Sherwood Park, AB T8A 0A1
We had a great time at Callingwood. The weather cooperated nicely and it was fun with the Mighty Mutt group there as well. There was about 18 owners from my group and lots of Mighty Mutt owners. It was good to see how the little dogs and bigs dogs could get along together. See the pictures that both Jane & I posted.
Our next walk will be at Strathcona County Regional Off-leash Site which is located just east of Edmonton. Jane and her dog Lucy will be the lead at this park, as I have never been to it before. I love going to new parks and checking them out! Jane said the park is lovely with beautiful fall colors. The path winds through the trees and will take about 50 minutes to do the planned walk. The dogs will love it.
The Highway 21 Regional Park is a multi-purpose park serving residents across the County. Located on Highway 21 and Highway 628, the park is Strathcona County's only dog off-leash site.
From Wye Road (which is Sherwood Park Freeway), drive 3 km south on Highway 21, turn west onto Township Road 522 and watch for off-leash area signs (only a few hundred meters along TR 522). The parking lot is on the south side of TR 522.
From Whitemud Freeway (which becomes Township Road 522), continue east past the Highway 14 intersection until just before reaching Highway 21. Turn south into the off-leash parking lot. If you reach Hwy 21, turn around and you will see the signs.
The attached link has a map:
Jane, Lucy and I will meet you just east of the parking lot at the gate to the off-leash area. I will have my cell phone on, just for the walk in case you are going to be late or get lost (780-690-5256).
Your dog does not need to be licensed in Strathcona County, but dogs in the off-leash area must be under control at all times - have your leash ready in case you need it.
Looking forward to seeing you and your pooches on Tuesday night at 6:30 p.m. for a nice Autumn walk in the park.
