With autumn approaching – and a chill creeping under our collars – our thoughts turn to the bodies that could be keeping us warm this fall and winter. If you don't have that special someone, a recent study suggests that bonding over your pets is one of the best ways to get to know other caring and compassionate urban dwellers! However, if you're serious about finding a dog-friendly someone to share some time with, you'll likely need more of a plan than just walking your dog around the neighborhood. This is where dog parks present the perfect opportunity to scope out potential partners!
The best dog parks in Toronto aren't necessarily the biggest or greenest – for dog owners, spaces that are safe and accessible set the standard. But if you're seeking one of the most popular, it's sprawling Trinity Bellwoods Park which is one of the most coveted for pooches in the whole city!
The off-leash pit at the centre of this massive urban park has green bins for doggy waste, ample seating, and is sunken, so hipster human counterparts can picnic on the surrounding hills while keeping an eye on their pups. A picture perfect place for a meet-cute, don't you think? We do!
The next time you're feeling social, let your canine companion be your babe magnet! It increases who you might find yourself cuddling up to this winter – besides your pup, of course!
Trinity Bellwoods is one of the city's most dynamic urban green spaces. Learn more about it from the Friends of Trinity Bellwoods, a volunteer group that works together to improve the green space, cultural and recreational activities of the Park. With a community recreation centre (including swimming pool!), dog walking zone, weekly organic market, tennis courts, meandering hillocks, and loads of community events, this park is all you desire in an urban environment! In fact, it's one of the reasons our current two-storey, three bedroom attached Victorian listing on Lisgar Street for $899,900 is such an amazing opportunity. Because, for urban dwellers, there is untold value, in terms of richness of lifestyle, placed on both location and proximity to amenities – like Trinity Bellwoods Park!
And if you find yourself out of treats, or needing to replace a fraying leash, head over to our newest commercial listing for sale: Helmutt's Pet Supply at Queen and Bellwoods – just around the corner from the park!
