Dogs are welcome in certain parks designated "leash free",
or off-leash. A 'leash free' area within a park is a place where
dogs can socialize and run off-leash in a safe, secure environment.

dog licence requirements
Any dog in Vancouver over the age of 3 months needs a licence. You'll
be glad you did if your pet is ever lost - the City says that 95%
of lost dogs wearing a licence are returned to their owner.... and
95% of dogs lost without a licence tag never find their way home.
