In addition, dogs are not allowed on sandybeaches or playgrounds within the regional district.

There is an off-leash area with a permeter fenc at Christie Memorial Park in Okanagan Falls. In addition, many municipalities within the regional district provide similar spaces.

“While the majority of dog owners are considerate of local dog control bylaws, and of their fellow park users, occasional conflicts do occur. In most cases, issues are easily resolved with a polite conversation,” the notice reads.

In addition, the regional district asks pet owners to remember to clean up after their pets.
