3 London Dog Parks to Visit This Spring

Continuing with The Londog’s Dog Exercise Areas reviews, I have picked three fully enclosed dog parks worth visiting with your dog this spring, that Argo and I particularly enjoyed last year:

  1. Hurlingam Park (SW6) | West London
  2. Pasley Park (SE17) | South London
  3. Higham Hill Recreation Ground (E17) | East London

East London Dog Areas | Sir John McDougalls Gardens


If you walk around Canary Wharf and you are looking for a fenced dog park, you can find and enjoy a dog exercise area in Sir John McDougalls Gardens. These are located in the middle West side of Canary Wharf’s peninsula, between Westferry Road and the Thames Path. The nearest DLR station is Crossharbour. Dogs are allowed in the Gardens whilst only on the lead, except for the dedicated enclosed dog exercise area, where they can run free. Read our review of the area in this blog post.

South London Dog Areas | St Giles Churchyard


The second dog exercise area to be featured in our series is the one located in St Giles Churchyard, South London. St Giles Churchyard is situated off Camberwell Church Street (continuation of Peckham Road) in Camberwell (closest station: Denmark Hill Overground station, around 12 minutes far) and hosts an enclosed dog area. Discover our thoughts about it in this blog post.

West London Dog Areas | South Park


South Park is a lovely park located off Peterborough Road, in the Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham, at a convenient distance from Parsons Green (less than 15 minutes walk) and Putney Bridge (less than 20 minutes walk) tube stations. Dogs are allowed in the park, and, if you prefer to let your dog off in an enclosed space, you can enjoy a nice dog exercise area (the picture above shows the dog area – and a very happy Londog testing it! -).

In this blog post – the first in The Londog’s dog areas reviews series – you will discover what we thought of the dog area.

Discovering London Dog Exercise Areas


When I first moved to London from the continent, I was very impressed by the fact that, in most parks, dogs could run off-leash. That is great if you have a very-well-trained and obedient dog. But what if your dog is not yet there (because maybe has a high drive, a bad recall, does not get along well with other dogs), or simply the park overlooks busy roads and you don’t want to take any risks?

Having a dog with a high drive myself (despite our continuous training), I could not trust Argo off-leash in open parks. So I began looking for enclosed dog exercise areas and mapping them out. I will tell you more about it in this blog post!

This post will be updated adding each new dog area review I publish on the blog. To keep up to date I also advise you to follow The Londog on Facebook, to be alerted when a new review is live.
