About Walkhaven Park

Because they truly attend to our four-legged companions, Walkhaven is ranked as one of the best dog-friendly parks.

Walkhaven is the best option for a dog-loving family’s day out because it has a kennel (Jurassic Bark Kennel), a pub (The Dog Box), and a restaurant (The Walkhaven Kitchen) that is specifically pet-friendly.

Situated close to the Cradle of Humankind, the farm spans 22 hectares of grassland. Essential for anyone who loves dogs!

About Verity Park

Verity Park is a lovely, calm haven that is ideal for anyone looking to unwind and get in touch with nature.

One of the best things about Verity Park is the friendly and welcoming community that frequents this park. It’s common to strike up a discussion with other pet owners when walking your dog or playing fetch! This creates a cosy and welcoming atmosphere that instantly puts you at ease.

Verity Park is a wonderful spot to take your pet for some outdoor exercise and socialising with other doggies! Verity Park has approved off-leash areas, where dogs can run around and play while their owners take in the scenery and socialise with other like-minded pet owners!

About Delta Park

Nestled between Blairgowrie and Victory Park, approximately 10 kilometres northwest of the city centre, Delta Park is a tranquil and spacious 104-hectare park that is dog-friendly and one of the largest “green lungs” in the city.

There are many beautiful walking paths that are frequently visited by runners, cyclists, and doggies! Dogs are welcome at Delta Park and are not required to wear leashes.

There are large areas of open grass for your dog to run and play, along with shaded pathways and beautiful walks!

If your dog likes swimming, be prepared for a wet puppy since Delta Park is home to numerous ponds, streams, and dams.

There is a cute restaurant next to the park called Delta Cafe & Don Quixote, which is pet-friendly! It is the perfect place for an after-walk brekkie with family and friends—furry friends too!

About Golden Harvest Park

Golden Harvest is a lovely area in the northern neighbourhood of Northwold, behind Northgate Shopping Centre, where dogs are allowed to walk around freely.

The park is huge, covering about 55 hectares, and it has many dams as well as some unspoiled native bushveld.

You are able to meander around the main dam, go fishing, walk your doggie, and ride mountain bikes in the park. The little ones can play on the jungle gym in a number of play zones.

If you have a large or hyperactive dog that needs a good workout to burn off some excess energy, the park is a terrific place to take them! The park is completely fenced with a guard at the gate.

About Emmarentia Park

Located in the centre of Johannesburg, Emmarentia Park offers two main points of interest for visitors: the Emmarentia Dam and the Johannesburg Botanic Gardens.

The large space located on the north-west side of the dam has been named “the best dog walk in Johannesburg” due to its popularity amongst dog owners! At this park, you will see puppies wading into the water, grabbing balls, and running free!

While your dog goes around and burns off some energy, unwind on a seat or on the grass beneath a tree.

About The Wilds Park

Situated in the heart of Johannesburg’s urban area, The Wilds is arguably the most picturesque park in the city and has been declared a National Monument.

With artworks dotted among the park, gorgeous views and family- and pet-friendly, The Wilds lives up to its name in a good way.

The Wilds has sections that are dog-friendly, so bring along your four-legged buddy for a walk.

 

About Huddle Park Golf & Recreation Trails

Dogs and their owners are welcome to use the pet-friendly portions of this public golf course located in the Eastern Suburbs of Johannesburg. Dogs on leashes are welcome, and after a walk, pet owners can grab a refreshment at the Club House Restaurant. Use the walking pathways or simply meander through the open area of the park.

Huddle Park welcomes socialised, trained and obedient dogs that may be off leash inside of the dog park.

About Ark Walk Park

Ark Walk Park is situated about 5 minutes from Dainfern Estate and is the biggest dedicated dog park in Fourways, Johannesburg, Gauteng.

The walk park is designed to create a safe, outdoor environment for families and pet owners to explore and relax in. The park has 23 acres of walk park, with a 2,5km trail running track, kids play areas, 2 dams, lovely clean toilets and their famous private Enclosed Areas for people with anxious or anti-social dogs.

There are 2 spaces available to book for R100 for 60 minutes. Pet owners are welcome to block book multiple slots and do a single payment for all.

Each area has a water bowl and water provided, as well as a large gate for cars to drive into and out of the area.

About Echo Park

Doggies of all ages should be taken to the Echo Dog Park in Fourways, Johannesburg. Here, dogs can mingle and run unrestrained without any restrictions. For those pet owners who require a little assistance, the park also offers dog training courses on weekends. There are even Sunday Morning hikes every week that you and your pooch can take part in.

About Lonehill Park

The Lonehill Recreational Park boasts several features, including a well-kept green lawn perfect for a picnic in the sun, a well-equipped children’s play area, a lovely view of the Lonehill Koppie, and a nice spot to walk dogs.

For those who want to enjoy some fresh air or want to walk their dog, this is one of the best-kept secrets. The park encircles the Lonehill Dam, which has a guard on duty permanently, ensuring you can enjoy your walk with peace of mind!

About Loerie Park

Loerie Park is among the dog parks in Johannesburg where your dog can walk free off the lead. The park is fully fenced and has closed gates, so you and your doggy are safe. This park is excellent for walking dogs as it is a 1.2km grass lap. There are also many dog walkers to socialize with, so you and your dog can make new friends.

 

About James & Ethel Gray Park

The James & Ethel Gray Park is one of the pawsome dog parks in Johannesburg to walk your dog because it is primarily populated by dog walkers. It is in the upscale neighborhood of Birdhaven, just south of the glitzy Melrose Arch. Through its 36 hectares, the Sandspruit River flows, bringing a lovely, peaceful ambiance. There are winding walks, clean restrooms, and landscaping that combines native plants and well-kept grass. Your fur baby can run around freely off-leash and is protected by a fence around the park.
