Dog runs

Parc à chiens

2020-06-02 | Closure of the dog runs
Following an order by the Direction de la Santé publique de la Montérégie, the City of Saint-Lambert has had to close its dog runs until further notice. We will inform residents as soon we get the green light to open them again. Thank you for your understanding!

Your dog is welcome in the two fenced dog runs:

  • Seaway Park, that borders autoroute 132, on Riverside Street;
  • Lespérance Park, near the lawn bowling club and the community gardens.

Dogs can run free and play to their hearts’ content, in pleasant and safe surroundings. 

Access cards 


Since Thursday, December 5, users of the Lespérance dog run need an access card to enter, as a controlled access system has been installed there. Users who already have an access card for the Seaway dog run can use the same card for the Lespérance location.

The dog run parks are equipped with a controlled access system. Therefore, to use the parks, you must have an annual access card.

Users can pick up a card at City Hall, from Monday to Wednesday, between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Thursday, from 8:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., and Friday, from 8:30 to noon. Proof of residency and a valid dog licence (or the receipt for the licence) is required. 

For residents, the access card is free. If they do not have a licence, they will be able to obtain one from City Hall at the same time. The acces card is renwable each year on September 30.

Non-residents wanting to use the dog run have to obtain an annual access card, for a $125 fee, renewable on September 30. 

Users must keep their access card. It is reusable each year. A $30 fee will be applicable to replace a card.
