Popular dog Parks in central Bangkok to enjoy with your pet
There is no shortage of beautiful recreational parks in Bangkok; however, none of them are dog friendly.
Ironically, stray dogs are free to roam these parks but you can’t bring your well-behaved, leashed dog inside any of these parks. Luckily there are a few places where dogs can feel the grass beneath their feet and run leash-free alongside their furry friends.
Soi Sukhumvit 26, Sukhumvit Rd., BTS Phrom Phong, 088 874 2777. Open daily 10am-6pm (Closed Mondays).
A one-stop shop for all your pet’s needs, Barkyard BKK offers more than just a grassy space for your active tail-wagger to roam free. Their on-site pet grooming services help keep your dog smelling and looking its best. The pet shop is filled with sleek, designer accessories for you to spoil your furry loved ones.
An outdoor café with a full menu of delicious food and drinks means you can sit back and relax while your fur-kid runs off to make new friends. The facility also incudes a dog hotel where the rooms are fitted with cameras so you can keep an eye on your dog while you’re out of town. Dog access to the enclosed grass area is just 100 baht.
Ozono Petropolis Park
307 Sukhumvit Soi 39, Sukhumvit Rd., BTS Phrom Phong, 02-259-2788. Open daily 10am-8pm.
Tucked away at the end of Sukhumvit 39 is Ozono, a small community of stores catered to pets and their owners. Here you will find a members-only dog park called Petropolis, which costs 300 baht per day or 1,500 baht per month to give your dogs and cats access to two-rai of lush garden space where they can be walked by professional dog walkers if you choose to relax with a cup of coffee instead.
There’s also a communal area in the middle of the shopping complex where dogs are free to mingle without any cover charge; however, you must keep your pet on a leash for safety reasons.
BMA Dog Park
Wacharaphol, Bangkhen, Bangkok 10220, Thailand
Created by the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA), this public dog park opened just a few years ago and already has over six thousand registered dogs as members. The gated park has both grass and sand areas with plenty of space for all types of dogs to run freely off-leash.
There are also obstacle course facilities to train your dog’s intelligence and mobility while giving them a chance to increase their confidence. To qualify for membership, dogs must be up to date with their vaccines and implanted with a microchip in case if they go missing.
