Last week, Ottawa Metro Park's beach was closed to the public; Saturday, the park was reopened to dogs and their owners.
For the past 10 years, the park has held its annual Dog Day at the Beach. The fundraiser helps raise money to fund beach operations, but more importantly, it's good for both the dogs and their owners.
Although the beach has been closed for the year, Ottawa Metro Park will stay busy throughout the Fall. For more information on upcoming events, visit their website at www.jampd.com.
