The Yonge & York Mills Dog Park Off-leash dog walking area is located in a small hollow on the West side of Yonge Street, just North of York Mills Rd. / Wilson Ave. and the GO / TTC Parking lot. This location makes it an ideal pitstop for those needing to take a break while they are crossing the top of Toronto.
There is ample parking at the GO / TTC lot as well as at the York Mills Park parking lot and a small lot off of Mill Street just to the south. It’s an enjoyable and somewhat scenic walk up from the Mill St. lot to the dog park itself.
The off-leash area has a single double-gated entrance and the ground cover is a combination of grass, leaves and dirt. The dog park is completely fenced. There are lots of trees to provide trees on hot days and is’s position within a small hollow protects it somewhat from the wind. There is no water source within the park.
What to Expect
While not a destination, this is a great park for those in the area with dogs or those finding their dogs pacing in the back of the car and needing a short detour off Hwy 401. The park is frequented by dog walkers but is not exceptionally busy. If you are in the area, it’s the ideal park for a lunch break.
What’s Not to Like
- This park is somewhat small.
- During the winter, spring and on wet days this park can be somewhat muddy.
- The proximity of the park to Yonge Street and Hwy 401 make this park somewhat noisy.
