As community needs and activities change, there could be opportunities to alter the status of a park and add, remove or alter an off-leash area within the City.

The City of St. Albert received a change request to remove the existing off-leash area designation for Willoughby Park, including access to the off-leash boarded rink, as per the Animal Bylaw – 11/2013.

Virtual Workshop

The information gathered at the January 19, 2022 virtual workshop will be posted in the Key Documents section soon.

The focus of this virtual workshop was to:

  • Hear from participants about how they currently use Willoughby Park and the value it and the surrounding area may hold for them.
  • Identify challenges associated with interactions between dogs and people in the area.
  • Brainstorm potential actions or changes about the use of Willoughby Park.

Following this workshop, an online survey will be open February 14 to 27 on this page.
