Dog friendly parks
Most dogs love the great outdoors, and Victoria has an abundance of parks and gardens throughout the state. Some of these parks permit dogs, either on-lead or off-lead.
Dog etiquette in parks
Please observe the following simple rules when bringing your dog to a park for the benefit and safety of your dog, other dogs and the general public.
- Keep your dog is on a lead at all times unless you are within a designated off-leash area
- Ensure you are in effective control of your dog at all times
- Always carry a scoop and bag so that you can clean up any waste left behind by your dog
- You may need to carry a water bottle for your dog, particularly if the weather is warm and there are few taps or water sources nearby
