Dog parks set to make Bengaluru the most canine-friendly city

Staying true to its identity of being a dog-friendly city, Bengaluru has one of the highest number of parks dedicated exclusively to canines.

Some of the popular ones include the Dog Park at the Elephant Pond in Ragihalli which is an open space filled with lush greenery where dogs can run free without their leash, the Domlur Dog Park, among others.

Pet lovers have a ball pampering their four-legged friends with a day at these parks over lazy weekends. With more parks being added to the list, the city is set to turn into a haven for dogs in the country.

Among the oldest ones is Cubbon Park that attracts a lot of dog owners every Sunday. Bengaluru’s most loved park turns into a pooch club as a host of canines arrive in the park for their run and frolic between 8 am and 11 am on Sunday mornings.

Rohit, a dog owner, has been bringing his dog, Daisy to the park for the last two years. “I was told about this place by a friend and have never missed a single weekend so far. Daisy loves running in the park and meeting with her pooch friends. I would advise every dog owner to visit this park,” he says.

While Cubbon park is good for a morning run for your dogs, the Dog Park at the Elephant Pond is the city’s first private off-leash park and offers a vast green space for your dog to let loose and explore nature. “It is an hour’s drive from the city and offers a vast space that gives your family and your pets a wonderful bonding time amidst nature,” says Srikanth Shankar, founder of the space.

“There is hardly any space left given the crazy traffic in the city. This becomes a perfect getaway for pet owners to spend quality time with their pets in the middle of nature,” he adds. Since its inception in 2015, over 1,300 dogs and their owners regularly visit the park every weekend.

Another preferred park is the Domlur Dog park that was created by transforming a junk yard into a beautiful space for dogs. The 6,000 sqft land of BBMP had become a dumping ground for the last five years. The Ugly Indian, a group of motivated volunteers along with pet lovers from Domlur and Indiranagar got together and transformed the dumping yard into a sprawling space for dogs.

Kaikondrahalli Lake Park also offers pet owners the facility to spend quality time with their pets in the park between 5 am and 11 am and 3 pm to 7 pm. With many pet owners from the city thronging these parks, the city will soon transform into the most preferred city for pet lovers in the country.
