Shubie Park Shubie Park is a pet-friendly park in Dartmouth. This urban park has a lake on either side and is a great place to explore with your leashed pooch. There are canals, trails and benches throughout the park, but the highlight is an off-leash area. The space is not fenced, so keep an eye on your pup and don't let them wander too far away. Dog owners are reminded to clean up any mess that is left behind. See Details
