WINNIPEG — A new temporary location is housing the Brenda Leipsic Dog Park while construction continues on the second stage of the southwest rapid transitway.
The park, located at the northwest corner of Parker Avenue and Georgina Street, is 3.5 acres in size and can be accessed via Parker Avenue.
The city says the Leipsic Dog Parkers Inc. and Manitoba Hydro worked together to open the temporary off-leash dog park on hydro’s property until construction is complete in the fall of 2019.
“All the dog parkers of Brenda Leipsic Dog Park are very excited about today’s opening of our temporary dog park and would like to thank everyone involved for making this happen,” said Dan McInnis, chair of the Brenda Leipsic Dog Parkers Inc.
“Our dog park community is looking forward to the completion of Winnipeg’s finest dog park next year and all the benefits it will bring.”
Following the completion of the southwest rapid transitway, the dog park will have a permanent home located off of Hurst Way. Construction of the permanent Brenda Leipsic Dog Park is expected to begin in spring 2019.
