We encourage you to exercise your dog often, and to pick up after your pets - why not visit one of our dog off lead areas, or visit our new fenced dog exercise area.

Enclosed Dog Exercise Areas

Harmony Fields

Visit the Harmony Fields off-lead dog park in Alcock Street, Maddington where there are two fenced dog exercise areas - one for large dogs and one for smaller dogs. The park includes 1.8m high perimeter fence, dual gate entry, agility feature, watering points, shade and different surfaces to cater for a range of dogs. Please note, dogs should be on lead when outside the exercise area. Voted in the top three dog parks in Perth by ABC Listeners, why not go check it out for yourself?


Bracadale Dog Park

Canning Vale dogs and their owners have a new off-leash enclosed dog park to enjoy, with the recent opening of Bracadale Dog Park. The fenced park is divided into two areas, one for introverted or timid dogs and another for extroverted or boisterous dogs, and features a grassed area, natural shade, covered seating, waste bins and drink fountains with dog bowls. It also includes interactive elements including crawl tunnels, large tyres, an agility ramp and sandpit.

Off Lead Areas

Areas you can exercise your dog off-lead are scattered through out the City. River foreshore areas along the Djarlgarra (the Canning River) and Southern River are dog off-lead areas within the City. 

These are some of the City parks and reserves where off-lead exercise is permitted:

Responsibly exercising your pet

A reminder to keep your dog under effective control at all times. This means your dog:

  • Responds to commands and returns when called
  • Remains in a reasonable distance from the owner at all times
  • Does not act in a threatening or aggressive manner to other people or animals
  • Does not cause damage to flora or fauna
  • Does not enter a lake or water channel

It is also recommended you follow these guidelines to ensure all members of the community can enjoy out outdoor spaces together:

  • Carry a lead at all times
  • Watch your dog around children, to avoid accidental injuries
  • Be courteous and understanding with other dog owners

Important: Dog owners have a legal responsibility to clean up after their pets. Please respect your local park and community. The City provides doggy waste bags in various parks to promote and encourage correct practice.
