Do we need an off-leash dog run in Mimico?

A Mimico Dog Owners Association Facebook Group has been created to assess and address the need for an off-leash dog run or park within our neighbourhood. The nearest off-leash (Humber Bay West) is 3km away, a 45+ minute walk. Please invite your local dog-owning friends to join this group for further discussion: www.facebook.com/groups/mimicodogowners/
