Local Off-leash areas
Felixstow reserve is a huge flat grassed area bordering Riverside Drive and Langman Grove. The whole area is designated off-leash but the other side of the walking path close to the river is not included.
Drage Reserve is also designated off leash but it is smaller and closer to OG Road.
Adelaide Dog Parks
The Felixstow section of the River Torrens Linear Path is possibly the prettiest part. There are kilometres of trail here, which also join up with the reserves detailed above.
