Paws about | 5 places to walk your dog in Sydney

October 28, 2014

There is no denying the fact that I adore my dog, Teddy. With him insisting on two walks per day (and us happily obliging), I have gathered together a great list of places to walk to change up that daily or weekend routine.

1. The Bay track, Lilyfield. 

There are several spots to enter this track, through the suburbs of Lilyfield, Rozelle, Rodd Point and Drummoyne. The track is about 7km long with a vast change in scenery depending on what part of the track you have reached. While 7km can be a long walk for a dog, there are plenty of areas to stop for a sniff or swim.

2. Blackwattle Bay, Glebe.

Glebe Foreshore has a beautiful walking track that weaves along the bay known as Blackwattle Bay. From a children’s park with equipment, small beaches and picnic spots, a walk along the bay suits everyone. Stop about halfway and allow your pooch to have a quick swim and run in the sand. A little further up from there is Blackwattle Cafe where you can get a great coffee and bite to eat.

3. Centennial Park. 

Another great spot for the whole family. Make a day out of visiting Centennial Park and have a BBQ or stop by the lakes to feed the ducks. The inside track of the park is an on-leash area, but the outside is off-leash, so your dog can have a run around without you worrying about receiving a fine.

4. Rowland Reserve, Bayview. 

A little bit of a drive from Sydney, but this reserve has a dog-friendly beach where you will find a lot of other dogs playing in the water. Perfect for hot days, your dog can unleash some energy and cool down at the same time. Your dog is allowed off-leash at all times and is permitted to swim in the water.

5. Camperdown Memorial Rest Park, Camperdown

Most of this park is off-leash, giving your dog an opportunity to run around and play with other dogs. Weekends can be a bit busy with people picnicking, but towards the afternoon there are a lot of dogs around looking for a run and a play. This park is right near Newtown, so you can go and grab a bite to eat afterwards.
