The gravel surfacing on the trail is fairly loose, however, and may be difficult with narrow tires. The trail is almost flat.</div><div class="ExternalClass440F481DB4114530A3C9BF993595868B"><div>There are two areas where dogs are not allowed -- the ponds and areas surrounding them on the park's east side. And the foreshore between Iona Jetty and North Jetty. These are both areas with high value as wildlife habitat. A ​leash-optional trail has been designated along the lower roadway on the Iona Jetty. Your dog must still be under your control. All other areas in this regional park are designated as leash-required.
