If you're looking for a spot where you can walk your dog and legally take him/her off his/her leash, try one of the hockey rinks. No, really. When they aren't being used for hockey, you can take your pooch and let him run around. So, if, like many of us, this is important to you, try: Iron Horse Park at Jersey and 52nd Avenue; Valley Place Park on Louisiana Avenue; Bassett Creek Park on 32nd Avenue; and Welcome Park on Welcome Road.
