Hong Kong’s Best Doggy Hangouts


• Thinking of where to take Fido this weekend? Here are our top picks of dog parks and walks in Hong Kong, based on your dog’s personality.


Getting fresh air from time to time is beneficial to not only you, but also your furry friend! Whether you’re planning a day trip or just a quick stroll with your dog, there are plenty of parks and pet-friendly walks in Hong Kong to explore. The question is: which are the best ones for your picky pup?

For the Outgoing Pup: Penfold Park

Is your pup a social butterfly? Visit Penfold Park during the weekend and they will be thrilled to meet and hang out with other dogs and their owners there. Located within the Sha Tin Racecourse in the New Territories, it’s one of the most frequented pet parks in town for a reason: it spans over 20 acres, featuring expansive, high-quality grassed areas where dogs are allowed to run off leash. That means pets can freely socialise and play with one another, but without feeling constraint. There are even three artificial lakes where your pooch can take a dip and paddle around!

For the Shy Pup: Quarry Bay Promenade Pet Garden

For introverted pups who prefer keeping to themselves, take them for a relaxing walk in the Quarry Bay Promenade Pet Garden, which is just a stone’s throw away from Taikoo Place. The 500-metre-long seaside walkway comes with sweeping views of the Victoria Harbour, perfect for an undisturbed stroll or jog in the breeze with your furry buddy. In addition to grassy patches and facilities like dog waste bins and rain shelters, there are also benches and arbours along the way, so you can take a break when you – or your puppy – gets tired zooming around.

For the Energetic Pup: Butterfly Valley Road Pet Garden

If your pooch seems to have endless energy, then you’ll both enjoy an afternoon in the Butterfly Valley Road Pet Garden. The largest pet park in Kowloon, it boasts a wide range of animal amenities, including playground equipment for dogs. From weave poles to pipe tunnels and hoops, your pup will have a blast playing on their own or with other dogs. Meanwhile, you can unwind on a bench without worrying that they may escape by accident, thanks to the dual-gate entrance design. And if you want to pick up a dog treat afterwards, Petkoikoi, a 5,000-sq-ft pet supermarket, is a mere 10-minute walk away.

For the Adventurous Pup: Pik Shan Path

What’s great about living in Hong Kong is that nature is never far away. So, if you and your pet pal are in need of a dose of nature – and adventure – why not go on a hike just within the city? Pik Shan Path on Lung Fu Shan, for instance, is easily accessible from the University of Hong Kong. The path is well shaded and mostly flat, which means it’s manageable even for smaller breeds. If you’re up for a challenge, climb the stairs up towards Pinewood Battery to explore historic military forts on the hill. Otherwise, there are also vantage points along the path with breathtaking city views of the city.
