Dogs in parks

Certain parks in South Australia provide dog owners with the opportunity to walk their dogs and enjoy the attractions of our parks and reserves.

You can take your dog into the parks listed below along designated walking trails providing that it is on a lead and it remains under your effective control at all times.

Disability dogs

Disability dogs (such as guide dogs, hearing dogs and accredited assistance dogs) are permitted in most public places. A disability dog must be restrained on a leash while in a park.

If you would like to take your disability dog into a park, please contact us in the first instance. We will be able to provide information on any potential hazards within specific parks that may affect your dog. Please contact the park via the phone numbers listed on each park page or call the information line on (+61 8) 8204 1910.
