Dog Parks in Milton: Your 2024 Guide

4 min read  •

Milton is a dog-friendly community with more and more residents welcoming dogs into their families. But what do you do when you want to go beyond neighbourhood walks? Visiting one of the two local dog parks in Milton is a great way to introduce your pup to new friends!

Dog parks are also a great place to go for humans too. That’s because even if you are just getting out for the benefit of your dog, you are also doing yourself a favour and interacting with pup parents.

Without further ado, let’s discuss Milton dog parks, their park rules and information, and the organization responsible for supporting them!

The Two Dog Parks in Milton

Cedar Hedge Park West

Cedar Hedge Park is also known as Central Bark. Rain, shine, and even snow, this dog park is open year-round for your pup’s pleasure. Inside the off-leash fenced-in zone, your dog will find a few trees to sniff, some park benches for their humans to sit and rest on, and lots of open space to run around and play in. 

There is a separate kid’s play area, which is helpful if you find that your children feel overwhelmed by all the dogs. The play area is also there to keep your children safe, as some dogs are hesitant and can become slightly aggressive when small kids unknowingly run up to them. 

You’ll find that everything is well-organized. Many describe the feeling of bringing your dog to this park as a small-town atmosphere. After a few visits, you will recognize the other owners as much as your dog recognizes other dogs. 

Sunny Mount Park

Sunny Mount Park, also known as Dogs Rhul, is the second dog park in Milton. Similar to Central Park, your dog will love to run free in this ample-spaced off-leash dog park. You’ll find it fulfills the same needs for your dogs. 

Sunny Mount Park is in the west part of Milton near Bronte and Ruhl Drive. To get closest to the park, take the entrance off Ruhl Drive and continue through the first parking lot until you reach the circular lot at the end.

Information on Both Parks

Here is some quick information to know what to expect when you head out with your pup.

Tents are set up for those scorching days, as well as shared water containers and dog dishes in case you forget to bring some water.

Each park is approximately 2.3 acres in size. The kid’s safety zone, which adults are also free to use, is 10′ by 50′.

Volunteers who work with the Town of Milton set up and run the parks. They help ensure that dogs and their owners can socialize and exercise their pets without disturbing the rights of non-dog owners. 

The park hours are 8 am to 11 pm. 

The general rules of the parks are as follows: 

  • All dogs must be leashed when entering and leaving the fenced-in area
  • The human bringing the dog must be responsible and aware of where their dog is at all times
  • All dogs must be handled responsibly
  • No dog may threaten another dog
  • All glass containers must be left at home
  • You must pick up after your dog

Leash Free Milton

Lastly, it’s important to recognize Leash Free Milton, the organization responsible for this wonderful operation. Established in May of 2008, this non-profit group relies on membership fees, donations, volunteers, fundraising, and more to support the two Milton dog parks. 

Sometimes they will have events, such as when they show up at the Milton Farmer’s Market to help dog owners and friends of dog owners become more aware of their parks and the fees required. You can get an annual membership for up to three dogs for $20.00. 

You can also purchase some cool swag from their online store, such as their Doggie Bandanas, t-shirts, and hats.

Before you head to one of the parks, check out their site to ensure you are up to date on all the rules.

Final Thoughts and Further Reading

There you have it. That should cover all you need about the two dog parks in Milton and the organization that keeps it all running.

Remember to follow the rules and pay your membership fees. But most of all, remember to get your dog outside for some fresh air and leash-free runs to have a PAWsome time!
