Please be advised that the Ryde Park dog off-leash area will be closed from 12 December 2022 to 8 January 2023 for maintenance works.
Alternate dog off-leash areas in close proximity can be located at Olympic Park and Pidding Park.
Future works are also planned for Blenheim Park in February and ELS Hall Park in March. Check back soon for more details.
An off leash area is a designated public area in which dog owners can exercise dogs without a leash. These are the only areas in the City of Ryde where dogs are permitted to run free without a lead.
It is recognised that dogs benefit greatly from a chance to run freely and socialise with other dogs as it reduces boredom, pent-up energy, barking and other nuisance behaviour.
See maps for off-leash areas within each park.
To protect our local native wildlife, certain areas within City of Ryde have been declared Wildlife Protection Areas. These areas are Field of Mars Reserve, Kittys Creek corridor and Terrys Creek corridor. No dogs are allowed in Field of Mars Reserve. At Kittys Creek and Terrys Creek, dogs must be on leash along established tracks.
