Best dog parks in Melbourne
Green Gully Reserve, Keilor Downs
A compact but well-designed agility course complete with tunnels, agility poles to weave in and out of, ramps, and doggy platforms. Fully fenced off from the rest of the reserve so your pooch can safely navigate their very own obstacle course.
Clayton Reserve, North Melbourne
You can’t beat a dog park with a sandpit, set amidst lush green grass (great for sniffing). The fenced-off dog zone is a bonus for this one that resides so close to the CBD.
Alf Pearce Dog Park, Strathmore
This park is a mecca for the discerning dog who wants an all-inclusive experience.
With facilities including an agility zone, time-out space (for when your dog just needs to chill), run-around area and doggy drink fountains, this one is tough to beat.
Brooklyn Dog Park, Brooklyn
Boasting its very own doggy toybox, the Brooklyn Dog Park features an agility course that includes hurdles, ramps and logs, all while safely fenced off for your dog pal to play safely.
Aranga Reserve Dog Park, Donvale
With a dedicated fenced-off training area, this park is perfect for pooches who prefer their own company. It also features a large off-leash area complete with an obstacle course for dogs that enjoy socialising or who need to work off access energy. There are also plenty of benches for owners to sit and relax.
Ruffey Lake Park, Doncaster
Featuring a mix of leash and off-leash areas set amongst hectares of lush green grass, this park has shrubbery for the pup that likes to get back to basics when it comes to their dog parks.
Martin Reserve, West Footscray
Expect a local dog park that keeps it simple. Fenced and off-leash, it offers plenty of space for dogs and owners alike to socialise while enjoying a coffee from one of the many local cafes.
Doggy Play Park, Heatherton
A private dog amusement park - need we say more? Choose between a private play with just you and your fur-baby, or enjoy a more social experience in the open play area. They also have weekly times dedicated to different breeds and dog sizes.
