BECOME A DOG PARK AMBASSADOR IN YOUR COMMUNITY!

Have your voice heard!  If you have a passion for dogs and are active in your community (or want to be), the City of Saskatoon (City) is looking for Dog Park Ambassadors.  A Dog Park Ambassador works closely with the City’s Animal Services Coordinator in the education, promotion, and continuous improvement of Dog Parks.

 

Which areas of Saskatoon are Dog Park Ambassadors needed?  

Currently, Saskatoon has six operational Dog Parks and two more under construction, set to open this summer.  Each Dog Park would benefit from a Dog Park Ambassador.  There are currently groups formed for Caswell Hill and Hyde Park Dog Parks.  The City is looking for representatives for the following Dog Parks:

  • Avalon – south end of Broadway Avenue;
  • Briarwood – south of Wilson’s Greenhouse on McOrmond Drive;
  • Hampton Village – north on Range Road 3060, near the airport;
  • Silverwood – access off Kinnear Avenue or the east end of Adilman Drive;
  • Southwest – off Valley Road by the landfill; and
  • Sutherland Beach – west of Central Avenue, north of Attridge Drive.

 

What would I need to do?  

  1. Get Organized:  Begin with creating a group in your community of like-minded people who are passionate about their dogs, being a responsible pet owner, and about providing services for pets.  Many groups operate social media sites to keep others informed about the happenings in their Dog Parks, but the sky is the limit on how your group functions.
  1. Have a “Go-to” Person:  Designate one or two representatives who will be the Ambassador(s) for your group and the primary contact between the group and the City.  This is a great opportunity to meet new people and share ideas with the City and other user groups.  Visit www.saskatoon.ca/go/dogparks for more information.

 

  1. Take the Next Steps:  Have your designated Ambassador contact the City’s Animal Services at animal.services@saskatoon.ca to ensure your group is represented at the next Dog Park Ambassador meeting.

 

How big does the Ambassador Group need to be?  

The group can consist of five, twenty, forty, sixty…there is no set limit.  Start with a few individuals and you will be surprised how quickly the group will grow.  Once you have established your group, remember to contact the City’s Animal Services.

 

What if I don’t want to be an Ambassador, but would like to join a group that is already established?  

Established Groups can be found by searching Facebook using their appropriate name and off-leash recreation area.  For example, search for “Sutherland Beach Off-Leash Recreation Area”.

New kinder-soccer/U6 Happyfeet Soccer Classes

We would like to take this opportunity to introduce a new program for children ages 2-5 called HappyFeet. HappyFeet is owned and operated by the ASTRA Soccer Academy and is designed to work in conjunction with SYSI Mini-Soccer. Please see the details below regarding HappyFeet.

Who: Classes for 2-3 year olds and 4-5 year olds

What: HappyFeet focuses on the acquisition of physical literacy and the development of gross motor skills while teaching children to master the ball from an early age. Through the use of stories, songs, nursery rhymes and childhood games, children begin to develop agility, balance, coordination, strength and flexibility. All classes are 30 minutes in length and each child has their own ball for the entire duration of the class. HappyFeet is essentially play time with a ball!

Where: New classes are constantly being added; visit http://www.happyfeetsask.ca/content/happyfeet-programs to  view the most current class locations.

When: HappyFeet classes run one day per week for a six week period. Summer classes are weekday evenings, while winter and fall classes often run weekend afternoons.

Cost: $40.00 per six week block.

For more information about HappyFeet or to register for a class, please visit www.happyfeetsask.ca
