Albert Park

With over 226 hectares, Albert Park offers plenty of space for you to walk, play and relax with your dog.
Albert Park is mainly an on-lead park but there are some designated off-lead areas where you can give your dog a good run. Dogs are permitted in most of the park, but must be kept on a lead in some areas and kept out of dog exclusion areas (including the lake and the playgrounds).
