News & Updates from the park
Water Quality Signs
Protect Your Pet
Thanks to Kilcona Park Foreman, Mark Storimans for installing the new water quality signs in the off-leash area. Park staff will be installing more signs throughout the off-leash area this spring.
Please heed the warnings to keep your dogs from swimming in the ponds or drinking the water.
New visitors to the park may not know that Kilcona is a former landfill and that leachate from landfills has been found to contain hundreds of toxic chemicals.

Black Dog Club Walk
The Black Dog Club is walking in…
Assiniboine Park, April 15
1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
Calling ALL Black Dog Club members!!!
The snow and slush is long gone and we’ll cross our fingers for all the sun we had for the walk we had in March!
King’s Park was a great success, and we hope even more members can come out this time! The forecast looks good so bring your sunglasses and your good walking shoes.
If you don’t yet have your membership card, this is the time and place to pick it up. Come out a bit early and get your card on the spot so we can start our walk as close to 1 p.m. as possible.
Our route is outlined in red on the map below. The shorter route is our “rain route” in case the weather turns foul. The longer route is the “sun route” which we all likely prefer. The entire walk should take about 45 minutes with plenty of time in between to socialize and say hello to everyone.
See you there with your magnificent black dogs!
Meet at: Assiniboine Park parking lot south of the Pavilion (lot between the Pavilion and the Conservatory).
Time: 1:00 p.m. to approximately 3:00 p.m.
