Truro-Bible Hill Off-Leash Dog Park

Check out the Truro-Bible Hill Off-Leash Dog Park

The Town of Truro Department of Parks, Recreation and Culture and the Village of Bible Hill offer dog owners the opportunity to permit their pets to freely run and play at their off-leash dog park on Marshland Drive. The dog park also includes a Small Dog Park, located within boundaries of the original park

Located near the Colchester Legion Stadium, the free, public facility includes more than a hectare of fenced-in property that includes grassy play areas, trees, and water.

The dog park is open seven days a week.

For the safety of dogs, their owners, and the public, users are asked to please adhere to rules which are posted at the park.

Please note that children under 12 years of age are not permitted in the park at any time, even with parental supervision.
