Dogs are welcome in all the Royal Parks although there are some places where they are not allowed or should be kept on a lead. These are clearly indicated within each park and are usually ecologically sensitive sites, children's play areas, restaurants, cafes and some sports areas.

When walking your dog in the Royal Parks please respect the wildlife as well as the other park users by keeping your dog under control. Ground nesting birds are particularly sensitive to disturbance by dogs and people. Please observe the warning signs displayed during the nesting season. In Bushy Park and Richmond Park you should keep your dogs away from the deer.

The Royal Parks are for everyone to enjoy. Please make sure you don't spoil someone else's day and pick up after your dog. Dog waste should be placed in a tightly sealed bag and taken home or deposited in the bins marked for dog waste or general bins. Dog fouling alters the nutrient levels of soils and can affect the survival of rare flora and fauna.

The Royal Parks licenses commercial dog walkers to operate in the parks.

Please consider the following:

  • It is your responsibility to keep your dog under control and to clean up after it: you are breaking the law if you do not do so
  • Keep your dog in sight
  • Keep the lead handy, you may need it
  • Respect the dog-free and dogs-on-leads areas
  • Respect other users and the wildlife

We hope you and your dog(s) enjoy the Royal Parks. Thank you for your help in protecting our wildlife and ensuring 'London' Personal Space' is a safe and pleasant environment for all park users.
