Have you been on the hunt for an off-leash park that ticks all the boxes for you and your four-legged companion? Well, look no further than Quarries Park, a vibrant oasis nestled at the edge of Clifton Hill. Not just a park, but a slice of doggie paradise. Quarries Park, Ramsden street reserve and Hall Reserve, all merge together to span an impressive 130,000 sq meters, this is a destination that knows how to put its paw-some visitors first.

Here, you'll find the freedom of open spaces, shaded by lush, mature trees that offer a cool retreat on those dog-day afternoons. The park's carpet of verdant grass stands testament to its size, remaining unscathed even with frequent use. It's an off-leash playground for your pup, where they can dash, dart and discover to their heart's content.

The rules are simple and sensible. Keep your canine buddy on a leash within 10 metres of playground, bbq areas and sporting areas during events, but beyond that, they can embrace their wild side, exploring the grandeur of Quarries Park unfettered. Even if there's a sporting event on, the park's extensive grounds ensure there's always a spot for some tail-wagging fun.

Its expansive layout also allows for quiet, intimate spaces, perfect for some quality one-on-one training time or for a peaceful picnic, with the city views acting as a scenic backdrop. Organize a doggie playdate or meet new furry friends - the possibilities are endless. But remember, cyclists and pedestrians share the park's lovely pathways, so keep an eye out for incoming bikes to avoid a game of ‘dodge the cyclist’.
