CBJ Dog Regulations
dog regulations for sport fields and for parks
start to take effect in March of each year.
The Summer regulations for sport fields take effect
The Summer regulations for Sandy Beach and the Rain
Forest Trail take effect May 1.
The regulations establish specific area and seasonal
requirements for on-leash, leash-optional, and no-dog
areas. Signs at each location describe the
regulations that are in effect in each area. The
regulations for Sandy Beach are complicated because
parts of the beach in front of the picnic shelters are
on-leash until you reach the stream.
However, you must pay attention to the posted signs
because the message on the signs determines what
regulations are in effect at that location.
Regulations -- begin to take effect during September.
