    Best Dog Park EVER!

    This place was amazing! We visited in summer of 2022 and the park is huge, with lots of open field space but also lots of trails in the forest, which is not a densely vegetated forest, so no need to worry about fido disappearing out of sight. Everyone we encountered was friendly and cheerful. There is a pond/small lake on site but not one you would want your pooch getting into as it's swampy. This was a fabulous place to visit and we'll definitely be going back when we next return to Ottawa to visit our son.

    Great park, spoiled by some bad owners

    I took my son's Labradoodle here for several years, and it was great. Large area with many trails to choose from. This year we took our new little cockapoo there and she enjoyed it at first. However on her 2nd trip she was attacked and rolled over by a gang of 3 larger dogs. She was extremely frightened and ran crying back to the parking lot. One of the owners said " Sorry he thought it was his chew toy"
    She is still frightened of bigger dogs and we haven't been back since. It is a great park but spoiled by some owners who don't control their dogs.

    Awesome spot!

    Needed a spot for my girl to run off some energy in the middle of a long day of driving. Bruce Pit was the perfect spot for that. Big, wide fields for the pups to play and shaded trails. Lovely humans too!

    great place to run around

    I’ve been going to BP for years! Great for dogs of all sizes as with any open park exercise caution and have control over your dog it’s not fenced and open to the parking lot if your close enough.

    Leash free run on wide trails thru pines. Poop pick up and disposal area. Even a rest room for us humans. Open area as well and benches for a sit and enjoy. Dirt parking lot. Bring water and treats. Canine company abounds year around.
