Joe Brown Park
The City is planning a new dog off-leash area in the western portion of Joe Brown Park.
City parks are open for casual use. To minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission, stay home when sick, stay 2 metres apart, do not gather in groups, and wear a mask in crowded spaces. Spectators for outdoor sports are not permitted as per new public health orders.
Dawn until dusk
Joe Brown Park is a 27.5 hectare (68 Acre) park nestled within the Newton Community and Panorama Ridge neighbourhood.
This park provides stunning multi-use trails for walking, cycling and horseback riding. These trails connect to the greater network of the Delta-South Surrey Regional Greenway and Serpentine Greenway.
The park also offers a softball field and riding facilities, which are home to the Panorama Ridge Riding Club.
Joe Brown Park was established in 1932 and expanded in the following years. The western portion of the park was a City-owned gravel quarry known as Colebrook Pit, which was in operation until 1983. In 2004, the quarry became part of Joe Brown Park. It is here where the City plans to build a new dog off-leash area.
New Dog Off-leash Area
The City is excited to be in the design stage of Joe Brown Park’s new dog off-leash area. This area will provide safe and engaging opportunities for dogs and dog owners, as well as enhance the park for all to enjoy.
We thank you for the valuable feedback collected through the online survey between November 20 and December 13, 2020. The Public Engagement Summary is now available.
Previously through stakeholder and public consultation, the Joe Brown Park Master Plan was completed and approved by Council in 2009. This Master Plan captured the community’s broad support for a dog off-leash area and noted that this would create better cohesion between equestrian activities and dog owners. The City is now furthering the vision for the dog off-leash area and the design stage is underway.
