BOISE, Idaho — A popular program for dogs and their owners is back!

Ann Morrison Park and Optimist Youth Sports Complex are seasonal dog off-leash areas starting Sunday, Nov. 1. The program runs through the end of February.

City officials say all areas of the two parks are available for off-leash dog use from sunrise to sunset, with the exception of Boise River Greenbelt paths, parking lots, roads and playgrounds. Owners are reminded to please pick up after their pets.

Together Treasure Valley Dog Island will remain open throughout the winter, but the City of Boise reminds everyone seasonal drawdown of water in the ponds surrounding the island is underway. Please be careful and keep your pet away from the banks!
