Dog Walking

Dog walking

Centennial Parklands is one of the most dog-friendly public parks in Sydney - in fact approximately 43 per cent (or 154 hectares) of its open space as off-leash areas!

Dogs are very welcome, however we ask dog owners and professional walkers to be considerate of other park visitors and make sure dogs are under control at all times.

Centennial Parklands offer areas for both on- and off-leash dog walking. Sandstone Ridge and Federation Valley are both popular locations for off-leash dog walking.

So while we enjoy the opportunities offered by the Parklands, dog walkers must pick up after their dog - so we recommend you bring some dog tidy bags with you on your walk or pick some up from our Visitor Information Counter.
