3. Blenheim Park

This park is at North Ryde and is surrounded by security fences with specific designated secure exercise areas. 

Even though this area is a busy built up area you don't feel it as much as there's so many trees and shrubs around, you still feel secluded with lots of playtime to be had.

Things to take for your walk. 

Even though these parks offer fresh water and doggy poo bags, it's always best to have fresh water with you, and I always carry an extra couple of poo bags with me just in case.

 If your park is off leash always make sure you have a lead with you just in case you need to restrain your dog for any reason.

Though some dogs are very happy and independent off their lead you never know when a new situation could arise and they get scared and need the reassurance that Mum and Dad have them under control. 

Remember to read the signs when you get there as well just in case the parks have specific off leash designated areas for you to enjoy.
