People, Parks, and Dogs

September 8, 2016

The Vancouver Parks Board has hired some whizz kids to develop a new policy for dogs in our city’s park system. They discuss this briefly on their website.  The Parks Board is keen to involve the public in the decision-making for this new Strategy and their site gives a number of ways in which you can contribute.

If this is of interest to you, you have a chance to say your piece at the next monthly Grandview Woodland Area Council (GWAC) meeting on Monday night, September 12th. Meeting starts at 7:00pm and takes place at the Learning Resource Centre under Britannia Library. If you are not sure where this is, just visit the Britannia Info Centre at Napier and Commercial and they will happily direct you.
