A great place to be on a hot summer day. Head over to the Morinville Splash Park, have some fun and cool down at the same time! The Splash Park opens on the May Long weekend and closes after the September long weekend. It is free for everyone to enjoy, and is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily.
Off-Leash Dog Park
The off-leash dog park is located on the North West quadrant of Morinville, east of the Bob Foster Extreme Sport Park (skateboard park) (107 Ave & 107 Street), giving you access to/from trails as well as the conveniences of a built-in parking lot.
The Off-Leash Dog Park includes a fence that surrounds the entire perimeter with gate access to ensure your dog is safe and runs free of any outside interferences. The added bonus to your park is that we have separated it into two sections. One side accommodates large dogs and the other side, smaller dogs. Dog agility equipment is also available for your dog to enjoy.
The Off-Leash Dog Park is open for all to use, however, may be closed from time to time to accommodate equipment and personnel.
