Exercise your dog

Current location in the site

Did you know that there are over 25 reserve areas where dogs can be exercised in Selwyn?

If you’ve visited your own park plenty of times, you could try somewhere different - there are lots of pleasant scenic spots to choose from.

Dogs can be exercised either on a leash or off leash in these areas but dogs must be under control. Under control means that the dog obeys commands and doesn’t bother or cause a nuisance to other people or dogs. If you’re outdoors please remember that dogs are not allowed in schools, in skate parks, or within five metres of events on sportsfields or reserves. They are also not allowed in playgrounds or within five metres of a playground.

A dog in the Foster Dog ParkPlaces you can exercise your dog off leash include:

Ellesmere ward: Coes Ford Recreation Reserve, Chamberlains Ford Recreation Reserve, Dunsandel Domain, Leeston Park, Osborne Park, Southbridge Park, Rakaia Huts Recreation Reserve

Malvern ward: Castle Hill Domain, Darfield Reserve, Glentunnel Domain, Greendale Domain, Kirwee Recreation Reserve, Sheffield Domain, Whitecliffs Domain, Kowai Pass Domain

Selwyn Central ward: Brookside Park (Rolleston), Foster Dog Park (Rolleston), Rolleston Recreation Reserve, Springston Recreation Reserve, Weedons Reserve, West Melton Domain

Springs ward: Lincoln Domain, Prebbleton Domain, Rhodes Park (Tai Tapu), Greenpark Reserve

If you are out with your dog in public, please remember to take a doggy doo bag with you and collect any mess your dog leaves behind so our parks are left clean for everyone to enjoy.
