Ruffey Lake Park is arguably the best park for dogs in the leafy Eastern suburbs of Victoria. A good two-thirds of the park is off-leash and with lush green hills and several decent walking tracks, your pup will be happy playing frisbee or running alongside the kids on their bicycles. Ruffey’s offers several BBQ areas and is a popular destination for birthday parties and early morning tai chi practitioners alike. The best playground and toilet facilities are on the Victoria St side. There is a large lake in the middle of the park – complete with wetland wildlife – but dogs are not encouraged to swim there.
