Edmonton, Alberta, has lots of fun parks for dogs and humans to play. These parks are all unfenced, and usually are not loaded with amenities, so users should come prepared.

Edmonton is a large city divided into many different neighborhoods. Though cold most of the year, Edmonton actually has the highest per capita park land out of any city in Canada. These parks contain a large concentration of healthy American elm trees, which have become diminished in many other parts of North America.

To use the off-leash dog parks, dogs must be licensed, and owners must carry a leash in their hands.
