Dog and his owner

Dog friendly places to visit

We love dogs as much as you do, so there's no reason to leave your furry friend at home. Take your pet on an adventure and get their tails wagging.

With parks, woods, and plenty of places to explore by foot in Redbridge, why not find a walk that both you and your dog will love. 

Find a place to sit and relax with your dog after a good walk. Why not check our directory for dog-friendly cafés in Redbridge, where you can have a cup of tea and a dog treat at the end of a lovely walk and plan your next adventure in Redbridge.

Remember its important to keep your dog safe in parks and those residents using the facilities too.

Don't forget to follow the Dog Control Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) which came into force on 1 October 2020 and will remain in force for a period of three years.

Top tips when taking your dog out

We want you and your dog to have a fun and stress-free day. We also want to ensure everyone can enjoy the parks and open spaces, whether or not they have a dog.

1. Keep them close

Using a short lead helps to keep your dog from disturbing ground-nesting birds and farm animals. 

2. Pick up the poo

Please always clear up after your dog. If you can't find a bin nearby, take the poo bags home with you.

3. Watch the signs

Keep an eye on local signs and notices wherever you're walking. They'll tell you if an area has a dog-ban, for instance, or if a path has been diverted, or if you're in an area where dogs can run off-lead.

4. Stay on the ball

Remember that not everyone loves dogs, and some people fear them. So make sure your dog doesn't run up to other people, especially children.
