So many people in Sydney are dog owners, and it's wonderful that the city caters for them with a lot of designated off-leash areas for dogs to run free and stretch their paws for a bit. What dog off-leash areas do you know of or love in Sydney?
I've got a couple of favourite places that allow for off leash dogs. One is Primrose Park in Cremorne, which is a huge area with two sports ovals that is really popular with dog owners and professional dog walkers. Another is Rawson Park in Mosman, which has a couple of specifically designated areas for off leash dogs. It has beautiful views and is also quite popular with locals (and has doggy waste bags and bins provided to keep things nice and tidy).
Sirius Cove is another great one, with select days and hours that allow for dogs to be off leash. It also has a little beach, so can be a really great one to take your dog for a swim at if you're available during the right hours.
I've mentioned this place before, but you just can't go past Cliffton gardens for the dogs. It's spacious and I've gone there plenty of times with friends who let their dogs loose... I'm a cat person :)
Camperdown Memorial Park! There is nothing more I like than sitting down and watching all the dogs play in the late afternoon. Sometimes I go into Newtown just to visit the park and pat some dogs... the curse of loving dogs but not being able to have one in my flat!
I personally love the Dan Mahoney Reserve dog park in North Parramatta. The area is simply so large that the dogs have the freedom to run around and meet other dogs with abandon. However, because the area is so large, it is probably wise to always keep an eye on your pet in case they get into any trouble.
