Gilpin Park provides a natural bush setting criss-crossed by granitic pathways and is a very popular dog walking and social park. A playground in the north east corner also has two table tennis tables, picnic and barbecues facilities.
In dog off-leash parks you must still keep your dog under control. In all other public places, dogs must be kept in control with a leash, cord or chain. Dogs are prohibited from the area around playgrounds or within creeks.
