Parc Pilote, Vieux-Montréal

Parc Gallery is not the only dog park in the city to be affected by major planning initiatives. Over the past winter, pouf! investigated the design and history of Parc Pilote, run by the Club canin du Vieux-Montréal (CCVM). Parc Pilote is an important amenity for residents of Old Montréal, where the rules regarding dogs are extremely strict. This is a beautifully-designed dog park, incorporating fencing, interspecies fountains, lots of seating and even public art. It successfully repurposes some of the land left over from the creation of the Bonaventure Expressway. But what will happen to Parc Pilote when the Bonaventure is lowered, as part of the revisioning of the southern access to the city? Read our article in Le Vieux Montréal to learn more about this sister park to Parc Gallery.

Greetings! Unfortunately, some dog walkers discover a danger, only sadly, when victimized. Please see the recent canine shockings/electrocution on StreetZaps and view our safety guidelines. I confer with Con Edison's Stray Voltage and Public Affairs Units; The National Electric Code showcases the site. Shock victim, Aric Roman's, case first appeared on StreetZaps in 3/09 and is in pre-trial at Con Edison (please see Testimonies, Safety) as he is permanently disabled. Thank you in advance and stay safe!

In appreciation and with best regards,
