BOISE, Idaho — The City of Boise's popular off-leash season for dogs at Ann Morrison Park is drawing to a close.
The off-leash program runs every year from Nov. 1 to March 1, making Thursday the last day this winter your pup can run around Ann Morrison untethered.
Several other city parks and designated foothills trails allow off-leash use all year.
The Ann Morrison off-leash program began in 2011 as part of a plan to a way to scare away the flocks of geese that spend their winters in the riverside park. In large numbers, the geese can damage the park grounds and leave behind droppings that create a public health hazard.
Boise Parks and Recreation started the off-leash program in 2011 to drive away the hundreds of geese that flock to the riverside park. The high concentrations of geese damage the park grounds and can be a public health hazard.
