Jake and Oliver Adventures

Posted by avatar on September 2, 2014

I’m back! Well I should say Jake and Sammy are back from a lovely summer up at our cabin, so let the blogging commence 🙂

On this somewhat dreary Labour Day weekend we met up with Oliver (a 1 year old Dachshund). Oliver is such an adorable dog. He and Jake just got along so well they didn’t even notice the crappy weather.

We decided to try an off leash park in Burnaby call Confederation Park. At first glance while walking down the paths it seems like any other off leash park in Vancouver. but it was’nt.  The paths are really wide and maybe because it was raining not many people were out walking their dogs. The paths also all intertwine so you can’t get lost, I always get lost 🙂 The park paths are a bit of a downhill /up hill walk so you do get some great exercise too.

Once you get to the top of the park you stumble across some spectacular views of the Burrard Inlet. It was a really crappy day so my pictures are not that great of the inlet. On a sunny day it would be a nice place to stop and enjoy the view. One thing to beware of though, is that there are trains that  run through the top of the park so please be mindful of this as you get closer to the water to have your dog on a leash. Confederation Park is really lovely and despite the noisy trains the views and lovely path make up for the noise. I give this park a 7 out of 10.

On a side note they do have a small Kiddy train if you want to take the kids and the dogs for a walk. The mini train looked like it was hopping busy.
