Caution advised at Island 22

The Times

Published: Tuesday, March 09, 2010

The equestrian park Island 22 Regional Park is becoming very busy with horses and riders practising for upcoming events as well as riding for pleasure.

Although the entire park is open to the public, the FVRD parks department asks people to be cautious while in the equestrian side of the park and always keep dogs on leashes.

Off-leash rules are changing
The Times

The Fraser Valley Regional District will not be permitting dogs to be off leash while in the equestrian area of Island 22 Regional Park, as of June 1.

The area in question is on the south side of the dike. Staff will construct a fenced off-leash area on the north side in what used to be the campground. The FVRD is also suggesting alternate dog walking locations along the Fraser River, such as Peg Leg, Jespersons or Gill Road.

The FVRD says they have recorded more than 400 dog violations at the park over the last 24 months. These have included dogs attacking other dogs as well as park visitors and equestrian riders.

The on-leash area will remain in effect through the summer, though the park will continue to be monitored. Offenders face prohibition from this area of the park.
