Town Requesting Resident Cooperation

posted on Apr 25 2018

The Town of Blackfalds has invested a lot time and money into our facilities in order to make a wonderful and fun living environment for the people who live here, this includes the Bark Park.

Bark Park is located just east of Protective Services on South Street and is a space to take your favourite fur animals. There, complimentary bags are provided to keep the area clean.

However, it has been found that during the winter months, residents have been using the ball diamonds at both All Star Park (Valley Ridge Diamond #5) and Cottonwood Meadows (Diamond #6) to walk their dogs instead of the provided off-leash dog park.

Not only are residents using this as their own dog park area, they are also not picking up after their pets.

Now that the spring weather has finally arrived and the snow has melted, Parks & Facilities have found a very large amount of dog feces throughout the diamonds - ruining the aesthetics. We are asking that pet owners use the Bark Park to exercise dogs and, even if they are going for a short walk around the neighbourhood, to please pick up after their dog. Refrain from walking them through amenities that are regularly used by families and residents.

Town workers will be out in an attempt to clear the feces, however, help is always welcome.

If you are interested in sparing some time to help make our diamonds beautiful again before the ball season starts, please contact our Parks & Facilities foreman at 403.885.6363.
