We all know that owning a dog can be great for our own health and wellbeing, but how do you keep your dog’s wellbeing in check? There are many ways to mentally stimulate your dog at home – such as toys and games, however getting them out of the house and allowing them to safely explore beyond the backyard is important in allowing them to expel all that physical and mental energy.
 

Dog parks can be a wonderful place to take your dog – they promote exercise through muscle use, increased brain activity and offer opportunities for socialisation with other dogs and people. Some of our communities feature a range of purpose-built dog parks and many of our communities have open spaces and walking paths which are just perfect for you and your dog’s next outing.

Dog Parks

Riverbank dog park, QLD

 
If you’re looking for a dog park that has plenty of space for your four-legged friend – look no further than Riverbank Dog Park! It’s conveniently located within the Riverbank community and features an abundance of lush grassy space, great for exercising your dog and playing fetch! The dog park is fully fenced, beautifully landscaped and has a playground that children will love – a great place to spend an afternoon with the whole family.
 
 

Flagstone dog park, QLD

 
Flagstone dog Park is paw-fect for sniffing out adventure!  The purpose-built dog park has separate spaces for both small and large dogs, featuring:

Our communities feature a wide range of open spaces including ovals, reserves and walking paths that are great for exercising and socialising your dog.
