The best dog parks in Singapore

Dogs deserve some outdoor exercise too. Here are the parks where they can play and run around – no leash required

Playgrounds and dog runs at the various parks in Singapore have since reopened and it's time to ease your cuddly companion out of lockdown with a game of fetch or a run around the lush green space – without a leash. A day out to these dog parks, runs, and green fields make a great alternative to the usual stroll around the neighbourhood. Plus, it's sure to make your dog's tail wagging. However, do keep 'em on a leash when you step out of the dog run, or when things get heated up with other doggos. And remember to keep a safe distance of at least one-metre apart from other pet owners.

Parkland Green is also home to the biggest dog park in the east. The flat grassy patch is perfect for your puppers to run and roam, and also make new friends. In addition to a dog run, a bird perch is also located next to the dog run where owners can showcase their trained birds.

  • Jurong East

Deemed as the largest nature wonderland in the heartlands (spanning a whopping 90 hectares), Jurong Lake Gardens is also one of Singapore's biggest public dog runs. The 2,200-square-metre grass field is large enough for big dogs – think labrador retrievers, golden retrievers, German shepherds, and huskies – to let their fur down and run freely. Plus, the grass mounds there provide natural obstacles for the dogs to enjoy. To beat the heat, simply guide your pooch to the nearest water point.

  • Bishan

Being located at the central of Singapore, the dog run at Bishan Park is easily accessible to all, which makes it popular among dog-owners. The large and spacious space of about 2,100-square-metre welcomes all types of dog breeds, both big and small, with two fenced areas – one for the bigger breeds and the other for smaller pups. There are also water sources and benches located all over the venue.

A dog run for the northerners, this park is one of the biggest Singapore. Located on a slope, it’s one big green space that provides ample space for dogs that have been snacking a little too much on their doggy treats. While your dog runs up and down the slope aimlessly, you can sit back and relax at the many tables and benches scattered across the space. Though there is no water point at the park itself, washrooms and watercoolers are only a stone's throw away. However, note the sign that informs the type of dogs needed to be leashed and muzzled at all times.

It's undeniably one of the biggest dog parks in Singapore – and the most convenient one too. Known for its amenities, the park features sheltered tables and benches, free water points, and even a high-tech washing booth inclusive of shampoo, tick repellent, and a blow dryer. Now, you can squeeze a little fetch session without having to worry about space – or mud.

  • Things to do

Despite being small in size, this dog run is great for small pups to stretch their legs. There's also a pond nearby, and though it may not be long and winding, it's perfect for short dog walks (with a leash, of course) and kids who are only starting to learn how to skate or ride.

  • Yishun

Another one in the north, this dog park is on the smaller side – perfect for a more intimate time with your little buddy. The park itself is triangular shaped, and well-maintained with a cement path along the inner circumference of it. At this site, you’ll have an enjoyable time running in circles (or triangles) with your dog but don’t go too hard as it's quite a distance to get to the watercoolers.

As the only known dog run in the south, Sit Wah Dog Run is a gem to many southern owners. With a spacious plot of land sprinkled with an abundance of trees, your dog will be able to run to its heart’s content all under some shade. With a nearby pet-friendly café to conclude the tiresome day, the only thing you’ll have to worry about are the mosquitos.

Over in the east, this park is the perfect place to unleash your dog after a long stroll at East Coast Park. Being slightly low-key and on the smaller side, this park – sheltered by canopies of old trees – is great for private sessions with your dog and its closest friends. Need a little break? There are multiple benches for you to rest your legs.

Lengkong Enam Interim Park
Lengkong Enam Interim Park

This spacious yet hilly dog park is covered with trees to ensure a sheltered playtime. The trees almost act like an obstacle course, so be sure you wear proper shoes. Also, don’t forget to pack some extra water for your canine friend as there is no water supply around the area.
