New areas to let dogs off their leads

Shared use zones (ZUC) are located in 109 streets, squares and parks around the city’s 73 neighbourhoods, where owners can let dogs off their leads to play, interact and engage in physical activity. To ensure coexistence and proper usage, users must respect the rules, pick up dog dirt and water down spots where their dogs urinate.
