  • Our Saturday market has a dog sitting service so you can enjoy the market
  • We have dog spas, trainers, walking groups and an agility club
  • Pets can shop for their own coats, treats and other goodies at pet stores
  • We love pets, especially dressed up at our Fall Fair and in our Pride Parade


Salt Spring has a new fenced in Dog Park!  See below for information and pictures about Paws in the Park  


  • Near downtown Ganges we have a lovely Dog Park just up Rainbow Road pass the High School on your right (turn into the same driveway for our Community Pool).  To the left as you enter the parking lot is a fenced dog park. It is very well laid out with entrance channels to two different fenced in areas so dogs can be separated, if they are not compatible. Please close and latch both gates when entering and exiting.

    Leashing your dog into the fenced in areas is a good idea, so they are not vulnerable to traffic coming and going and you have full control if there are other dogs.  Inside the park are a picnic table, a couple lawn chairs and covered sitting area (thanks to our Lions Club!). The bulletin board on the way in has information on pet control on the island and there is a doggie bag dispenser area and garbage pail.

     

    Note:   For the health and well-being of our four legged friends:

    • Never leave your dog unsupervised in the park
    • Leave the park in the same pristine shape you find it in (pack out what you pack in)
    • Dogs that are sick, in heat or aggressive should not visit the park
    • Smoking, food or glass containers should not be brought into the park
    • Dogs who jump up, bark excessively or dig holes should not visit the park,
      until the owner/handler has this behaviour under control.
      See our Services page for Trainers who can help you

    If in doubt, basic respect and park ethics are the rule!  The park is not a children's playground - it's for Dogs!! It is not advisable to have small children in the park as they can look and sound like squeeky toys and smell good! It is potentially - not a safe environment for little folk if there are dogs that are unknown to you and your child. If you see anything that concerns you in the park contact SSI PARC at 250-537-4448. Our community is very grateful to Salt Spring PARC, CRD and our Lions Club for this fabulous Dog park and facilities.
