While these beaches are off-leash areas, it is important to ensure you clean up after your dog and ensure your dog is under effective control at all times. Please note that the City of Rockingham also does not permit dogs on kids playgrounds, car parks or other areas used for sporting or other activities.
There are two unique enclosed dog parks in the City of Rockingham – built especially for your dog to socialise with other dogs and stimulate their senses. Within each dog park, there are two different spaces – one for small dogs and one for all dogs. Not only is your dog encouraged to interact with other dogs, but there are also a variety of activity zones for them to play in.
The Rockingham enclosed off-leash dog exercise area is located on the south western portion of Bayview Reserve, Bay View Street, Rockingham. For many dog owners, visiting this place with their dog is simply part of their daily routine.
Another great place to take your dog is the new Baldivis enclosed dog space, which occupies a part of Acrasia Road Reserve known as Barri Barri Park.
Both dog parks also include facilities such as:
- Dog drinking fountains
- A 1.8m high boundary fence with a 1.5m solid, internal dividing fence
