The Railyard Off-leash Dog Park is free to use and is open all year-round.
A defining feature of the park is the paved trail network that runs throughout the 10-acre land parcel. The Fernie Pets Society is currently completing the project to fully fenced off-leash dog park on vacant land centrally located within the City of Fernie. Dog waste disposal bins with waste bag dispenser can be found throughout the park.
The Railyard Dog Park is found south-east of downtown just over the railway line. From downtown Fernie, cross over the railway crossing by Gearhub, and turn left onto a gravel path leading past the Fernie Skate Park. There is space for parking next to the Skate Park, and also at the northeast end of the park just off Ridgemont Avenue.
The Fernie Pets Society is a volunteer-run charity dedicated to animal welfare and creating a pet-friendly and safe environment. Established in 2008, the Society provides assistance with lost & found pets, offers a subsidized spay and neuter program for cats, veterinary care for injured animals and is building a fenced off-leash dog park and accessible trail system.
