Although Sydney is very well provided with parks, bushland, beaches and open spaces, a great deal of this – including all National Parks and virtually all beaches – is off-limits to our four-legged friends, even when leashed. Gathering information on where and when dogs can be taken and walked has been notoriously (amongst dog owners) time-consuming, and so most Sydneysiders and Sydney visitors restrict their dog walking and playing to a very few favourite local spots. Local author and dog lover Catherine Proctor gathers all that information into a single, compact book. Previously published as Sydney’s Best Dog-friendly Parks, Walks & Places to Play, this is the 3rd edition of this very popular book. Now dog-owners can choose from a wide variety of dog-friendly areas right across Sydney, and ensure that their dog can be a part of even more family outings!
Catherine Proctor is a freelance author and editor who has lived on Sydney’s Northern Beaches for over 20 years. She is the author of several books and is co-author of two other books for Woodslane: Sydney’s Best Picnic Spots, Parks & Reserves and Sydney’s Best Beaches & Rock Baths. Catherine took up the challenge of writing this book while simultaneously recruiting an essential new part of the family to ‘help’ with research!
