David Bartlett Park is a nature and wildlife area, great for visitors who love a walk in the park and seeing dogs. David Bartlett Park is a large green space designated as an Off-Leash facility.
In 2011, dog owners and dog walkers of Manotick established the David Bartlett Park Dog Walkers’ Association. Their mission is to keep the park as an off-leash area by making sure park users help maintain the facility in a clean, safe and respectful manner. The park will be filled with dogs off their leashes, and during warm weather, you can see water-loving dogs in the Rideau River. Visitors can bring their dogs too, as this open space will suit any size of dog.
