Full Text

A leash-free zone will be created in Georgetown's Cedarvale Park this year-- if financing is approved during the 2006 budget discussions this month. The zone-- on a one-year trial period-- is about 1 acre in size, located between Halton Region's water purification plant and Silver Creek. The area will be fenced, with six new parking spots adjacent to the main entrance. The area will be closed for special events, with the fencing and entry gates designed to accommodate the special event staging or parking as required. Average visits to the Acton zone are between 40-50 a day. HHDog volunteers are responsible for monitoring and upkeep of the leash-free zone, and will do so for the Georgetown one as well. HH-Dog, currently with 70 members, has an ongoing membership drive, $20 per year or $30 per year for greyhound owners who have an hour a week of exclusive use of the zone for their dogs, unique needs. Donations are also accepted. Contact details for the group are www.hhdog.com, group@hhdog.com or 905-8771630.
