Ray Brydon Park is Invermere’s newest public outdoor space and the District’s formally designated off-leash dog park.

This 12.5-acre park is located in a natural area adjacent to Toby Creek just past Invermere’s Industrial Park band before the Wilmer bridge on Toby Creek Road. The park was named to recognize the late Ray Brydon, a dedicated community member and volunteer who regularly walked his dogs along Toby Creek.

In addition to a network of well-maintained trails, the park includes a large parking lot with a permanent outhouse, riverside and trail benches, and a series of small natural pools for dogs to frolic in. Dog bags and receptacles are available on site.
