Brisbane City Council provides over 150 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.
