There are 4 fully fenced, 'Off-Leash Dog Parks' in Bendigo as well as many other dog friendly areas to explore. Dogs can meet other dogs and their owners can make new friends too. Remember to clean up after your dog and retain effective control of your animals for the safety of other park users.

Please note dogs are not permitted on the Queen Elizabeth Oval or in Crusoe Reservoir and No. 7 Park unless they are assistance animals as defined under the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 or law enforcement dogs.
