Dog Exercise / Restriction Point

Off-leash areas When exercising dogs off-leash, owners and handlers must maintain control over their dogs at all times. Be alert and make sure that your dog isn't behaving aggressively towards other dogs or people. Dog owners are responsible for cleaning up after their pets.

Fully fenced dog exercise areas Wellington has three fully fenced off-leash dog exercise areas:

lower part of Treasure Island / Kainui Reserve, Hataitai (land opposite Cog Park) Ian Galloway Park in Karori / Northland – this area is lit from dusk until 8pm Taylor Park, Tawa (access through Redwood Station car park).

On-leash areas Leashed dogs are welcome in many popular gardens, most of the Wellington Town Belt and on city streets.

Central city Dog owners are welcome to walk through the central city with their dogs on-leash at all times of the day and throughout the year.

Dogs across the city are not allowed to be left unattended in any public place.
