Off-lead parks and reserves

Stonnington has 26 parks and reserves where you can exercise dogs off-lead.

Our open spaces are used by many people, for many different reasons. When exercising your dog, remember to:

  • pick up after your dog (bags and bins are supplied at designated off-lead areas)
  • keep your dog on-lead at all times unless in a designated off-lead area
  • keep your dog off garden beds and playgrounds
  • keep your dog off ovals and sports grounds during designated times for sporting events, training and other community activities
  • carry a lead and always ensure your dog remains controlled and non-threatening.

Failure to do so may result in a fine.
