Calleya Dog Park

If you’re planning a puppy playdate in the South of Perth, this enclosed dog adventure playground in Banjup is a great option for all the family. Featuring a children’s play area as well as agility equipment for pooches, the park is ideal for kids of all varieties, the fur kind included! With both a small and large dog section, there’s plenty of open space for your pooch to roam free before indulging in some post-walk nibbles in the park’s picnic area. If you haven’t brought your own snacks or need a wake-up call before your walk, we recommend checking out  the local dog-friendly café, Mooba Calleya, to get yourself a coffee and a well-earned treat!

Jack Marks Park

Fully fenced and complete with its  own community dog toy box, this enclosed park in Highgate is the paw-fect spot for a picturesque playdate with your pup. The park features a large grassed area, water bowls for thirsty pups and a fenced playground for children, with plenty of shaded areas if you’re heading out in the warmer weather. If you’re in need of a caffeine fix or a bite to eat after your doggo’s day out, you can find Lincoln’s 102 tucked away around the corner at (you guessed it) 102 Lincoln Street!

Whiteman Park Dog Park

Already a well-known spot amongst Perth’s pet owners, Whiteman Park Dog Park offers 2.5 hectares of off-lead fun for adventure-loving pooches. Open to doggos from 8.30am to 6pm daily, the park features over 500m of path, with a smaller enclosure for pups in need of a little privacy from larger fur-friends. Whilst fully enclosed to protect any wandering pooches, the dog-friendly obstacle course should provide enough entertainment to keep those tails and tongues wagging for hours!

Aveley Dog Adventure Park

Located within Central Park in Aveley, this fully fenced exercise area has become a popular meeting spot for local pet owners and their pooches. The park caters to pups of all shapes and sizes, featuring exercise zones for both small and large breeds. If you’re after a walk with a view, you can also enjoy a leisurely, on-lead stroll around the lake in Central Park. Aveley is situated a stone’s throw away from Swan Valley, so don’t forget to stop by our pet-loving friends at Slate Café for a post-walk treat if you’re planning a day trip in the area!

Rockingham Dog Enclosure

Designed exclusively for pups and their owners, Rockingham Dog Enclosure is the first of its kind in the Rockingham area. Located at Bayview Reserve, the park includes two separate, off-leash spaces for small and large dogs, as well as various activity zones to encourage pup-friendly play and interaction. And don’t worry - there’s plenty of seating so you can sit back and relax while your pup hangs out with their fellow fur-friends!
