Centennial Park Off-leash Area & Dog Parks
The District of Mission’s Parks, Recreation & Culture Department is seeking input on off-leash areas and possible enhancements to the existing off-leash area at Centennial Park. This brief questionnaire takes under five minutes to complete and information will be used to help decide how to best balance improving Centennial Park and possibly establishing an additional off-leash area in Mission.
Staff will also be collecting input in-person at the Centennial Park off-leash area over the next two weeks.
We’re launching more opportunities for public input very soon. Watch this space for news and for your chance to weigh in on:

The purpose of a Public Hearing is to give all interested persons an opportunity to voice their support or concerns to Mission Council. Members of the public who may be affected by changes proposed have an opportunity to appear before Council to voice support or opposition to these applications.
