I don;t know of any in Whitby, but there are these in Durham.
Ajax Conservation Area. Beautiful views. Large area for off leash. Hilly, water, forest, flat land, river, excellent. Location: Church Street and 5th Concession in Ajax, a part of the Conservation Area. Directions: 1st lights east of Brock Road, south of the 407 Highway, turn south. Follow to end and go left along gravel road, then right before steep hill. Park entrance and parking on the left. or: 401 to Westney, south on Westney past the Tim Hortons. Right hand side. (Thank you Helen Hatton & Jen)
Happy Tails K9 Park. 1 acre fully fenced. Opening soon, by membership only. Trial basis, if successful, park will expand. Currently 1 acre fully fenced. Event days, and activities, BBQ days for members. Location: 1970 Conc Road 9. (Thank you Kathy Asling)
And Harmony Creek Conservation Area is a beautiful, undeveloped piece of land in northeast Oshawa. The park has many walking trails and is used extensively by local residents and has become the de facto off-leash park for dog walking in Oshawa
Dog Fun Etiquette
Make sure to bring something (like a pooper scooper or bags) to pick up the mess your dog(s) make. Always clean up after your dog.
Bring some water for your dog and a leash (just in case)
Don't bring your dog if it is aggressive
Don't let your pet wander too far. Always keep an eye on them.
If the park is near a residential area, minimize the barking.
