Mayoral Candidate Mark Sutcliffe Commits to Opening More Dog Parks in Ottawa

Ottawa (Ontario) - Mayoral candidate Mark Sutcliffe has announced he will open more dedicated dog parks in the City of Ottawa.

“As our population goes up and more people welcome a furry friend into their home, I’ve heard from many pet owners that they want the city to open more dog parks,” said Sutcliffe. “I will get that done.”

“I heard from one Kanata resident who travels across the city to the Hampton Park dog park because she doesn’t have a suitable park close to her home.”

If elected Mayor, Mark will:

  • Build at least three new dog runs/parks in existing city or National Capital Commission (NCC) owned land in underserved neighbourhoods over the next four years including Kanata, Stittsville, and Barrhaven.

  • Consult with local city councillors and community associations to assess current needs and develop a plan to improve existing dog parks and / or runs, and establish new parks in other underserved neighbourhoods. This would include utilizing city-owned land, and working with the NCC to dedicate this space.
