Dog parks are fenced areas reserved for the outdoor exercising of dogs where they can be off the lead. In some parks there are two separate areas, one for bigger and one for smaller dogs. In other parts of built-up urban areas, dogs must always be on a lead in compliance with the law.
The urban area has about 1200 rubbish bins which can be used for dog waste.
