Off-Leash Areas

Dan Mahoney Off Leash Dog Park

While pets can bring joy, fun and enrichment into the lives of City residents, proper dog ownership requires responsibility. It is vital to walk and exercise pets. Regular off-leash exercise helps relieve pet boredom and release pent up energy when dogs are confined to small areas. Exercising and walking your dog can aid in the reduction of nuisance behaviour like uncontrolled barking.

The City of Parramatta recognises the need for public open spaces as private backyards and garden spaces decrease. Off-leash parks allow both dogs and owners alike the ability to mingle and meet in convenient, safe areas.

City rangers are actively working with the community to promote the principles of responsible dog ownership whilst using public park facilities. However, it is the responsibility of all park users and dog owners to control their dogs and to clean up after them using the facilities provided.

City of Parramatta has installed clear signage in public parks and provides dog litter bag dispensers and bins at all of our designated off-leash parks. Please practice courteous clean-up in these shared spaces.

Take your pooch out to one of the off-leash parks and spaces listed below. You can also view Off-Leash Areas on a larger map.
