Pets in the Park

Pets are welcome in all Manitoba provincial parks. Many park visitors find that bringing pets enhances their overall outdoor experience; but don’t forget that pets and their owners share the park experience with all other visitors! Below is an excerpt from Manitoba Parks:

Park Pet Rules:

Even the most loving, well-trained dog may act differently or even aggressively when in a new place, around new people, or in the presence of wildlife. If you do bring a dog to a provincial park, you are responsible for it at all times and in all places in the park. This means that you must: 

  • Take responsibility for the behaviour and conduct of your animal 
  • Clean up after your dog and place its waste in a garbage container (if garbage containers are not available, you must remove your dog’s waste from the park)
  • Have physical control of your dog at all times. In designated off-leash areas you must maintain voice control and carry a leash with you, should it be required
  • Pets are not allowed at designated beaches with defined swim areas

Identified service animals for people with disabilities are allowed to access all park areas, as long as the animal remains on a leash or harness, or is otherwise under the direct physical control of the owner.
