With regard to the recommendation to allow Heron Park to become an entirely off-leash area for dogs, this will be subject to public consultation in May next year when the Dog Control Bylaws are reviewed.
Until then the shared access for both on-leash and off-leash dogs will remain.
The shared option is popular with many people because it provides balanced park use for all members of the public. CATHERINE FARMER
