  • Stage 2 Water Restrictions Update - Royston, BCOB, and Comox Valley More information

The forested trails of the Comox Valley offer various opportunities for exercising pets.  Keeping dogs under control is required at all times in all locations. Having your dog within sight and on the trail helps ensure a pleasant park experience for all visitors, gives wildlife the space they need and keeps pets out of sensitive park environments. Even small dogs can cause others to trip, chase wildlife or initiate conflict with other dogs when allowed to run without supervision.

In regional district parks keeping dogs under control means:

  • Dogs must remain on the travelled surface or trail and within 10 m (30 feet) of the person who has care and control of it
  • Dogs must be responsive and immediately return when called
  • Dogs must not be molesting, harassing or attacking any person animal or wildlife
  • Dogs must be licenced
