If you love your furry child as much as I do, you are always looking for a fun spot to take them. Let’s be honest, the walk around the neighborhood twice a day or maybe even three times a day can get a little boring. Oak Bay is a beautiful community that welcomes our furry little children. They even have their own section in the Tweed Magazine!

 

Here’s some places in Oak Bay that I recommend:

 

1. Uplands Park: is a large undeveloped 74 acre gem in the middle of Uplands. There are paths throughout the park and even open spaces to throw the ball. You are surrounded by Garry Oaks, native plants and wildlife; it’s quite the peaceful walk. You can walk your dog on leash all year round and even off leash besides April, May and June.

 

2. Willows Beach: is the one of the most famous and beautiful beaches in all of Victoria. Besides the beach there is a large grassy area and an esplanade for you to walk your dog. Dogs are not allowed on the beach during the months of May 1st to September 30th but are allowed off leash October 1st to April 30th. WARNING: On October 1st the beach looks like Christmas morning for the dogs, don’t wear your fancy clothes as you are bound to get jumped on!

 

 3. Anderson Hill Park: is located at the end of Island Rd in South Oak Bay. The park is almost 7 acres and similar surrounding to Uplands Park with pathways and rocky areas plus you get to enjoy the panoramic views of the ocean. Dogs are allowed on leash at any time. Dog are allowed off leash in the open area on the brow of the hill during July to March.

 

4. Windsor Park: is located in South Oak Bay between Windsor Rd and Newport Ave. This park is meticulously maintained for sporting events but under strict time frames allows dogs off leash. Please see the full rules here: https://www.oakbay.ca/parks-recreation/parks-playgrounds/parks-listing/windsor-park. There are some very active organized dog walking groups that meet at the park early mornings for off leash play time with their neighborhood pals.

 

5. Oakdowne Park: is located on the corner of Oakdowne Rd and Midland Rd. It’s a smaller open park that is not fenced but allows dogs all year round with no restrictions. The community is even talking about fencing this park to have a fenced dog park in the heart of North Oak Bay. Walk along the beautiful streets of Lansdowne slope and explore the lane ways behind the homes then stop by this park for some off leash fun!

 

Happy Sunday from Willows Beach!
