Dog Friendly Places

Beautiful Joe Park

Beautiful Joe Park is located along the Bighead River. This facility includes a pavilion, picnic tables, walking trails, a public washroom and is a pet-friendly (but not leash-free) environment.

Throughout the park there are monuments and memorials to commemorate special pets.

The Beautiful Joe Heritage Society works on projects to improve the park and hold annual events.

Beautiful Joe's Leash-Free Dog Park

The Municipality of Meaford and the Beautiful Joe Heritage Society together have helped create a new haven for dog fun in Meaford.

The leash free park is located next to the wastewater treatment plant at 35 Grant Avenue. It features two fenced in areas - one for small dogs and one for big dogs - where Meaford's dog population can run freely without a leash.

The park includes shelters in each area, and water is available for dogs.
