Nudgee Beach is a little seaside town, 20 minutes out of Brisbane. About 3kms after the Nudgee Golf Course as the road runs parallel to the Kedron Brook Outlet just as you enter the town the Dog Park appears on your right. Whenever we arrive Coco knows and sits up waiting for me to unwind the window to sniff in all the salty goodness. The off leash area includes a section of beach for the dogs to swim and play in. Even in winter during a beautiful sunny day there is no stopping a dog that loves to swim. There is an agility course for the non-swimming pursuit minded dog or just plenty of space to sniff what’s around in general.
Downey Park along Breakfast Creek just north of the Royal Brisbane Hospital. Surrounded by sporting fields it was tricky at first to find the fenced off leash area that runs along the creeks edge. There are a few obstacles for your dog to test their skills on and plenty of shade from the surrounding trees. It is a long flat dog park with plenty of space to play in. There are a lot of pathways and sporting fields to walk with your dog on lead on a quiet day, generally through the working week.
Gregory Terrace Dog Park is tucked in behind the Gregory Terrace Public Pool. This dog park is on the side of a hill but is very spacious and for athletic dogs, ideal to wear them out as the chase the ball up hill. There is also a separate fenced of area that is flat for smaller or more timid dogs that need a little time before hanging with the tough dogs. There are plenty of paths along this area as well so be sure to keep your dog on a lead and look at for cyclists commuting to and from the city. If you don’t mind the terrain walking in the open spaces with all the greenery is really beautiful on a sunny day.
