Dog Park Considered for Lunenburg

By next summer there could be an area set aside in the Town of Lunenburg where Fido or Rover will be able to run free.  Council is exploring the feasibility and costs to set up an off-leash dog park.  Three sites have been recommended with one on Blockhouse Hill toward the back harbour being favoured. There have been complaints about some dog owners allowing their dogs to run off-leash on the Back Harbour Trail and on town sidewalks intimidating humans and other animals. Under the current By-law dogs do not need to be leashed but must be under effective control by their owner.
