The Partners love visiting the Etobicoke Valley leash-free area. It’s a treasure, especially when compared to the nearest leash-free park to us, the muddy little fenced in square of field behind the filtration plant down the street.
First of all, it’s big. The area runs along Etobicoke Creek from the foot of Southcreek road (Dundas and 427). Dogs and their humans can walk through the field or through the woodland paths. There are many places for the dogs to enjoy the water.
Sometimes there are ducks around the creek but this morning we only saw a single male mallard.
We were out pretty early so there weren’t a huge number of dogs in the park, but enough that The Partners had a chance to goof around and make some friends.
There were quite a few birds in the park this morning. They were a bit hard to photograph though, with dogs around – the birds keep their distance.
Some dogs can run and play all day and never get tired out. Not so with the Newfs. Ruby and George are both passed out at home now. Ruby is snoring.
