27 Dog Parks In South Australian Towns

Updated August 19, 2022

If you plan a driving holiday in SA, it is good to know where you can let your dog out for a run. The good news is that most towns, even small ones, now have a fenced off-leash area.

The Google map allows you to see where they are and after that is a list with each dog park address. Unlike our list of Adelaide suburban dog parks, we have not visited them all so in some cases we are relying on information from dog owners and local councils.

Please note: we’ve only included parks that we believe to be fully fenced and not shared with other users. If you know of more, or want to make a comment about any on our list, please, please do below!

Dog Parks in Regional SA

Berri: Off Leash Dog Park

Within Colin Jennings Apex Park, enter off Old Sturt Hwy opposite Lean St.


smelts rd dog park

Dog Park, Smelts Rd, Burra North.

Two enormous enclosures overlooking the town with good gates, fences, shade and water. Not watered so quite dry with some grass seeds in Summer-Autumn.


clare dog park

Pioneer Park, Pioneer Ave.

Smallish single park just north of the main street.


coonalpyn dog park

Dog Exercise Area, Dukes Hwy. Small single park. Believe it or not, this was the first South Australian dog park, opening in 1995!

A little hard to find as its main access is on the other side of the railway line. You get to it from the Duke’s by crossing a walkway opposite Morton St or driving around.

Farrell Flat

farrell flat dog park

Duncan Park Off-Leash Dog Park. Cameron Terrace. 2 separate large areas with double gates, water, bin, poo bags.  Obstacle course in one. Bench seat in each. Lawned but each with a scrubby treed area along one side.

Thanks to Tania for this information.

Hawker War Memorial Dog Park

Hawker Dog Park

Corner of Flinders Ranges way and Chace View Terrace. Two identical large areas with shaded seating and some obstacles. Presumably dog owners can choose which one to use based on the other dogs at the time. 

Thanks to Rose for this.

Kadina Dog Park

dodswell terrace dog park

cnr Doswell & East Terrace.

Small, single park with bark chips and small grassed area plus agility equipment, water.

Single park with water, shelter, seating and dog exercise equipment.

Moonta Dog Park

Mt Barker: Barka Park

Barka dog park

Access from end of Zanker Drive (nr Bluestone Estate). Signposted from Flaxley Rd.
Vast large dog area with range of amusements; separate small dog area also good sized, mostly grass.

Hastings Cunningham Reserve Dog Park, Shepherdson Rd.

Huge double dog park separated into small and large dog areas. Many amusements and obstacles plus water and shade.

Naracoorte dog park

Market Square Dog Park, MacDonnell Street, Naracoorte

A medium-sized single dog park. Gates don’t have automatic latches so care needed when closing.

Nuriootpa Dog Park

Penrice Road, in the linear park opposite the school sports field.
A long, narrow single park parallel to the road with a central ridge. Nice leash walks nearby.


peterborough dog park

  1. The dog park at Loxton is fantastic. Huge area all grassed. One water tap, dog agility and lots of room to run. One of the best. Thank you.

  2. There is a great fully fenced dog park at Mannum. There is grass, trees, a dirt area with a built in pipe for a tunnel and a concrete path around a sniffing garden. Double gated. In Hardy Street, opposite the golf club

    1. Hi Judy. My first thought was “I’ve already included it!” but then realised I’d only put it on the map and forgotten to give it a separate entry. Thanks for the update, and I’ve used your description.

  3. There is one in Hawker. I think it had 2 sections. Was fairly new, I can’t remembered if grassed or not..

  4. Port Broughton now has a single dog park just on the edge of town past caravan park. Also has the added bonus of beach access which is not used by the general public. Our Springer Spaniel thought both areas were great.

    1. Kadina & wallaroo now have single fenced dog parks. Does anyone know if there are any over on the Eyre peninsula?

      1. Thanks Judy! I’ve now added Kadina. There isn’t anything yet on the Eyre Peninsula but we live in hope…
