City of White Rock Council has approved a trial period for dogs on leash to be allowed to be on the Waterfront Promenade. The term of the trial period is from October 1, 2019 to March 31, 2020.

The Dogs on the Promenade Task Force has been formed in advance of the trial period to determine the approach that will be used to assess the relative success or failure of allowing dogs on the promenade prior to the trial period.  The outcomes of this assessment are expected to be used to determine if dogs should be allowed on the promenade beyond the trial period (on a seasonal basis).
