City of Boroondara Dog Parks

In the City of Boroondara, dogs can be walked on leads in all parks and reserves. There are also numerous dog parks where dogs can be walked off leash which can be found on the council’s website.

Off-leash regulations

Keep in mind that although you can walk your dog off leash in some Boroondara parks, some rules need to be observed including:

  • Owners must carry a leash
  • Owners should not allow their dog to upset other park patrons (including people and animals)
  • The dog must be brought under immediate control (leashed) if it threatens any park patrons

  • Dogs must be kept 30m away from barbecue and picnic areas when in use as well as any sporting events or public meetings
  • Dogs are not allowed in playgrounds and need to be on leash within 10m of the playground perimeter
