Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to be a member to visit a leash-free zone in a City of Mississauga Park?

All leash-free Zones in City of Mississauga parks are public spaces and open to all. LFM encourages all regular users to purchase a membership to support Leash-Free Mississauga in operating and maintaining existing zones and paying all capital costs for new leash-free zones, when approved by the City. The City of Mississauga owns the land and approves the locations of all leash-free zones. LFM pays all capital costs to establish new zones, including ground cover, fencing, pathways, parking lot, lighting, seating, access to water when available, etc. Leash-Free Mississauga receives no City funding and pays all expenses to maintain existing leash-free zones, including grass cutting, hydro for lighting, on-going clean up and maintenance of pathways.

Currently, annual membership fees are $15.00 for 1 dog and $20.00 for 2 – 4 dogs
