Responsible dog owners are welcome to walk their dogs at designated areas within the park. Download our leaflet Dog Walking in Rushmere Country Park to see where dogs are allowed with or without a lead and areas where they are not permitted. It also details where water is provided for dogs and the location of poo bins which we urge you to use.

Visit our Dog Fun Area located at the back of the main car park where dogs can exercise without a lead, ideal if you’re short on time.

To ensure this area, and all areas areas of the park, is enjoyed safely by all users please note:

  • Dogs must remain under owner’s control at all times
  • Please clear up after your dog and place waste in the correct bin
  • We cannot guarantee that this area is secure for all dogs
  • Any equipment is used at owner’s risk
  • Please respect other users of this and every area of the park where dog walking is permitted 
  • Dogs causing a nuisance will be asked to leave the site
