Brisbane City Council provides over 160 dog off-leash areas (commonly known as 'dog parks') in parks across Brisbane. Dogs can run, exercise, and socialise leash-free with other dogs and dog park visitors. Dog off-leash areas are generally fenced and include facilities such as seating, water, dog waste bins, and some shaded areas. Some dog parks also include agility equipment for drills and shelters for dog park visitors and their pets.

Your obligations as a dog park user

When using dog parks, make sure your dog:

  • is under your control (e.g. your dog will return to you when called)
  • is not a nuisance to other dogs and their owners
  • droppings are disposed of in the bins provided
  • is registered with Council, wormed regularly and its vaccinations are up to date.

Leave It program – coming to a park near you this year!

Brisbane City Council has partnered with Griffith University to deliver their Leave It program, offering free dog training sessions across Brisbane. Training will focus on helping your dog learn wildlife avoidance and provide you with excellent tips for helping you have more effective control over your dog in public.

These free sessions will be held at parks across Brisbane, see below for dates and parks and check the Leave It website regularly or follow @furry.friendsaus  on Facebook or Instagram for full details, updates and specific locations within the parks.
