Hi all, I asked City Council about the social distancing rules and our park. The response was ...

People will be required to maintain social distance and will not be able to gather in groups of more than 10. That will also apply in dog parks and in places like Little Mountain.

 Thanks.

With everything going on around us please be mindful of peoples space. It's great to chat with everyone at the park and have a good play with the pups. That's what I've always loved about LMP, the sense of community spirit. We are seeing a lot more non dog people so be respectful and not let your WET dogs jump on them.

Keep a positive attitude and we'll get through it!

Watch the icicles that have formed on the clubhouse over hang. Hopefully they bathrooms will be finished soon.

Cat up-date. Animal Services has removed the cat from the tree this afternoon. There were tattoo markings in it's ear so the owners can be traced.

Hi all. I have an upsetting discovery to report. There is a body of a dead cat in the trees along the tree line benches in the Big Field. Light brown in colour. There is vet tape on the paw. Might have dropped there by an owl some of the body is missing (sorry, gross I know). I'll let the City know. Please keep away from it.

The board members of Little Mountain Park Dog Club (LMPDC) were daily users of the park. We formed in 2012 and incorporated in 2013 in response to a threat to the park when plans were released showing that an extension to Chief Peguis Trail was going to bisect the park and eliminate the official off leash space. This was planned in order to benefit the growing Centreport inland port project being promoted by the provincial government. Learning that we could only be recognized and interact with the City (as owners of the land) by incorporating, we did so and worked to establish links with city council members and city employees.

For seven years, we worked directly and also as founding members of the Winnipeg Network of Dog Owner Groups (WINDOG). The planned route for Chief Peguis was modified to preserve the park and raised the possibility of increasing the footprint of the park in time. Winter garbage removal, City trail clearing, and improved Richardson ground squirrel remediation all became part of the efforts to improve the park for dog walkers. Through WINDOG efforts were made to elevate the status of dog walking as a desirable activity to be promoted and spaces preserved and increased.

As happens in life, the members of the board have found themselves with other commitments and obligations and club activities could no longer be prioritized. Fortunately, there is another group with similar goals that continues. Having two groups was sometimes counter-productive and it became clear that the park does not require two advocacy groups.

As a non-profit, we are required upon dissolution to disburse the clubs assets to a like-minded organization. We have selected Little Mountain Park Conservancy Group. They have agreed to accept the funds accumulated through fund raising for park use, and the event canopy will be donated to WINDOG.

We treasure the park and the fantastic experience we’ve had through club activities and we wish the current organization much success.

 

All the dogs had a wonderful walk and what a great sunset there was tonight!
