It’s official: Burlington is getting another leash-free zone.

Construction is expected to begin next week on the area which will be located in Hidden Valley Park.

The long-anticipated playground for dogs will be situated next to the Burlington Model Railway Club along Hidden Valley Rd.

The site has long been anticipated as Burlington’s next leash-free park and follows the lobbying efforts of many area residents who have pointed out the popularity and high use of the park by dog walkers.

The new leash-free area will include:

  • A 0.15-hectare (less than a quarter of the size of a soccer pitch)
  • Double-gated entry/exit enclosure
  • Accessible park benches
  • 6-foot high chain link fence surrounding the area

The site also has easy access to parking and is centrally located in the Aldershot community.

Depending on working conditions, the leash-free area could be completed by early next year.
