Dogs in Lamoureux Park
Following a successful trial period, the City of Cornwall has given the go ahead to allow dogs in Lamoureux Park year-round.
Dog owners are asked to be respectful of other park users who may not be as comfortable around dogs.
For the safety of all park users, all dogs must be kept on a leash at all times, and the leash should not be any longer than 6.5 feet (or 2 metres). Also, dogs must be kept at least 30 feet (9 metres) away from fixed structures such as the children's splashpad and playground area as well as fixed seating areas.
Each owner is responsible for maintaining control of their dog and picking up after their pet. Let's all do our part to keep Lamoureux Park looking great!

Share the Path!
Stretching from Gray's Creek at the eastern edge of Cornwall to Guindon Park in the west, Cornwall's recreational path is one of the City's most popular recreation assets.
It's also one of the busiest, with cyclists, pedestrians, joggers, in-line skaters and many others making use
of the path on a regular basis.
We all have a part to play in keeping the path safe and enjoyable for everyone, and we must recognize and respect the rights of others to use the path.
All path users are asked to keep the following travel tips
- Cyclists should yield to pedestrians at all times.
- Always keep to the right side of the path when traveling.
- Move completely off the path when coming to a stop.
- Check behind and in front before moving across the path or making a sudden turn.
- Notify others when you are passing by calling out a warning or ringing a bell.
- Obey all traffic signs and travel at a safe speed.
- Be aware of your surroundings. If you're listening to music, keep it at a low level or
use a single earphone.
Path users should also consider these safety tips:
- Familiarize yourself with the path and know your route.
- Stay on the path and avoid isolated areas.
- Tell others where you are going and bring a cell phone with you.
- Wear sun block and stay hydrated.
