Social distancing and dogs in parks

Published on 19 May 2020


We have 27 parks and reserves in Stonnington where you can walk your dog off-lead.

If you’re using one of these, make sure you:

  • keep your dog under control and on a lead when travelling to and from designated off-lead areas
  • carry a lead so that you can control your dog if it misbehaves, and
  • pick up after your dog – bags and bins are supplied in these parks.

If you’re able to, walking your dog in the morning will mean that you’re there at the least busy time of the day while people are using our parks more.

Let’s all play our part to flatten the curve and stop the spread of COVID-19.

Stay safe by maintaining social distancing of 1.5 metres and be mindful that Stonnington parks are shared parks.

Find out where your closest off-lead park or reserve is.
