The whole of St Anne's Park is off-leash from opening until 11am and then again for the last hour before closing the park. For the rest of the day, they have a large designated fenced-in area next to the model car track for your pup to run around. The ground has been covered with wood chips to help keep the paws from getting too muddy and there are plenty of shade trees for your dog to run circles around. There is a water station, two waste stations, and park benches for the human park users. The park has a separate small dog run making it a great place to start socializing your young dog!

The Shanganagh Dog Park is open 24 hours making a great choice for paw-rents who have long business hours but still want to give their pups a chance to blow off some of that excess energy stored up after a long day on the couch. This grassy park is fenced in so no need to worry about traffic. There are lots of trash cans to keep the park clean, however, there is not a water spigot so bring a bottle if your dog is one for sprinting when off-leash.

Open from 9 am-5 pm, The Marlay Dog Park is double gated for pup security and has separate areas for big dogs and small dogs so your pooch can feel comfortable running around off-leash. There are waste bins but no water fountains and it can get muddy here so don't forget the wellies if it's been raining!
