Brisbane City Council provides over 160 dog off-leash areas (commonly known as 'dog parks') in parks across Brisbane. Off-leash areas are generally fenced. Dogs can run, exercise, and socialise leash-free with other dogs and dog park visitors.

Dog off-leash areas include facilities such as seating, water, dog waste bins, and some shaded areas.

Some dog parks also include agility equipment for agility drills and shelters for dog park visitors.

Fairfield Park, Fairfield

Council is upgrading the dog off-leash area by installing a new small dog off-leash area with new equipment, as well as upgrading the existing entrances to the area including concreting, fencing, landscaping and new bins. 

This project will start on Monday 23 May and is scheduled to be completed by late-July 2022 (weather permitting).

There will be no public access to the dog off-leash area while the construction is taking place. 

Evans Road Park, Moorooka

Council is constructing two adjoining dog off leash areas (one for small dogs) in Evans Road Park including fencing, gates, shelters and furniture with concrete slabs. The project will start on Monday 18 July and is scheduled to be completed on approx. 5 September (weather permitting). Part of the open space parkland will be closed off during the works.
