Having trouble controlling your dog at the off leash park? We can help!
McAlpin Reserve, Ringwood North
This small off leash reserve is bordered by backyards, and includes a large playground and wetlands play space, so make sure you obey regulations with regards to leashing your dog within 15 metres of these areas. The remainder of the park has a shared track running along the outside, with kids wizzing by on bikes. So if your dog loves greeting squealing kids or chasing bikes, this may not be the park for you!
Warrien Reserve, Croydon
This lovely little bush reserve was a surprise. There is enough open space for the dogs to stretch their legs, as well as an (unfortunately on-leash, I found out later) bush track along wetlands populated with frogs.
The starting point is the car park in Zealandia Road. There is a playground here, and some picnic tables nearby, so keep your dog under control if there are people using those. Follow the walking track past the picnic tables, and then follow the nature walk numbers to enjoy the narrow track along the wetlands. Please bear in mind that families with young kids who might be scared of dogs also use this track.
