With the warm weather soon upon us it’s time to get out and about, and one of the best things you can do is visit one of the excellent dog parks that Brisbane has to offer. While there are many places you can take them, the best parks are off leash where your dog has the freedom to run and play. In total there are around 135 off leash dog parks in Brisbane and here is a selection of the best dog parks available.
Nudgee Beach Dog Park
If your dog enjoys the water, then Nudgee Beach Dog Park is an absolute must. Nudgee beach is best visited when the tide is low, giving your pup a much larger area to run on firm sand. The area also offers free BBQ’s and paw cleaning services. Only about a thirty-minute drive from the city centre this is the perfect getaway for a few hours, your pup will be begging to come back again and again.
