Park Play

Spaniel, Spoodle, or Staffy – whatever the breed, they all need walking. Darling shares the best places for your dog to run free.

1. Mort Bay Park, Birchgrove
Known as the ‘mosh pit’, this is where the tough kids play! If your dog loves a tumble - this is the park for you. Not keen on playing? There’s still plenty of space to roam. With easy access to the harbour, this park is great for swimming too.
2. Illoura Reserve, Balmain East
With sweeping Harbour Bridge views, this is the ultimate Sydney doggo experience. The grassed area between the playground and Peacock Point is off leash all day. If your dog loves a swim, head to the small beach at Peacock Point.
3. Birchgrove Park, Birchgrove
The entire area surrounding Birchgrove Oval is off leash, and dogs of all sizes and breeds come here to play. Nearby Snail’s Bay beach is great for swimming and offers pretty harbour views.
4. Propeller Park, Balmain East
Located near the Colgate Building, this park offers great views and opportunities to explore. On a hot day the little beach adjacent to the park is perfect for water play. Come 5pm the park turns into Oodle central.
5. Bridgewater Park, Rozelle
The section of Bridgewater Park between the bay and the sporting ground is always available for off leash exercise. With multiple green areas to choose from there’s plenty of space to run around or chase a ball. The view overlooking Iron Cove Bridge isn’t bad either.
6. King George Park, Rozelle
The sporting ground areas of King George Park are available for off leash play unless organised sporting games, training or events are taking place. Dogs must always be on a leash in the surrounding parkland, including the Bay Run.
7. Ewenton Park, Balmain
This quiet park is great for dogs. They can play off leash between 4pm and 10am during non daylight saving time, and 5pm and 10am during daylight saving time, weekends and public holidays. The best time to visit is in the late afternoon as the sun sets, reflecting off the glass towers at Barangaroo.
