Does Cochrane have a dog off-leash area?
Actually, the Town of Cochrane has two dog off-leash areas that total 6 hectares in size (see the map). The first is located at the end of River Avenue. The pathway is paved and there is access to the river, where dogs can swim. The second dog-off leash area is located under the Bow River Bridge (park in boat launch parking, accessible from Griffin Road east of Highway 22). Dogs must be leashed until in the dog off-leash area. This area is a large space that is excellent for playing fetch. No matter which park you use, dogs are required to be under control of the owner while in an off-leash area. Dog poop bag dispensers are located at both parks.
