Dog Parks in the Region
North Adelaide Dog Park
Medindie residents are lucky to have this facility so close, located in the parklands between North Adelaide and Robe Terrace. It has two fenced areas: one for for small dogs and puppies, and another for large dogs. The park has quickly become very popular among our clients. The two adjacent parks called Kangattilla and Kandarilla permit off-leash exercise but these areas are unfenced. This map shows the off leash areas.
Broadview Dog Park
This is found next to Broadview oval on McInnes Avenue, Broadview. It’s not so large but is well-fenced, makes a nice change and has a lot of ‘furniture’.
Visit this page to discover more Adelaide dog parks and how they differ from other off-leash areas.
Local Off-leash areas
St Helens Park – 39 Prospect Road, Prospect. This park caters for a large community of dog owners who meet after 5pm to let their (mostly large) dogs have a gambol together. The park is unfenced but the dog play area is set well-back from Prospect Road. Access is via Koonga Avenue.
Adelaide Dog Parks
The parklands opposite Medindie contain sporting grounds used by Wilderness School and good walking paths extending to North Adelaide around the horse agistment area. Behind Wildy Oval is an area in which you could be anywhere. There is ample opportunity to fine a quiet corner in this large public space.
Featured Pet-friendly Venue
A longish and rewarding walk through the Wilderness playing fields and along the horse agistment area adjacent Lefevre Terrace will bring you to the end of Tynte Street. Caffeteca at 53 Tynte Street, North Adelaide is a cool backstreets cafe with a good local vibe guaranteed to make the walk worthwhile. Over the road is the famous Perryman’s Bakery so bring an appetite.
