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.

Have you registered your dog? All dogs living in the Brisbane local government area that are three months or older must be registered with Council.

  • 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.
