The South West Off Leash Recreation Area, Southwest OLRA, falls within the Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area. In 2013, the South West Off Leash Dog Park becomes a 14.5 acre fenced off OLRA within the afforestation area.
This South West OLRA park is 14.5 acres in size, and located north of Cedar Villa Road. According to Francois Biber, of Newstalk 650 CKOM, “after an informal recreation area between 11th Street and the Canadian Pacific was sold for multi-use housing development, the City of Saskatoon has chosen a new lot, south of the railway tracks and adjacent to the city’s new civic operations centre.”

The Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area is in the City of Saskatoon at the furthest south west edge. Please make your way out of the city towards the landfill, onto Valley Road and drive past the entrance to the land fill on the left side of the road (south). However, don’t follow Valley Road all the way to the Strawberry Ranch or the Berry Barn. When you pass the Civic Operations Centre (bus Barns Construction Site) on the right side of the road (north). There is a sign there for Cedar Villa Estates, and township road 362 A as shown before the little right turn at township road 362A, then a quick left onto “Cedar Villa Road.”
On Cedar Villa Road you will continue heading west. Drive past the Snow Dump Road. The next turn off on the right side of the road (north) there will be parking for the South West off Leash Dog Park.
“The fate of an individual or a nation will always be determined by the degree of his or its harmony with the forces and laws of Nature and the universe. Man is not alone in the universe but is surrounded by sources of power, harmony and knowledge. The fullness of life depends upon man’s harmony with the totality of the natural cosmic laws. Our individual evolution is a job that has to be carried on day by day by each individual himself. It is a livelong task.” ~Richard St. Barbe Baker
