Blackwood Forest Recreation Park

Looking for an off-leash bush walk with your dog in Adelaide? This is the spot! It’s an easy, although undulating 1.4km walk that takes you first up through an open field, then into the forest, down the hill to cross the creek, and back out the other side through another open field.

This is our favourite spot to take our own dogs because Ares (pictured) really needs to run. We also love it because they get to meet other dogs, and of course, stop to take in ALL the great smells! There’s lots of variety here too, which is great to get the dogs to think a bit more; crossing the creek, jumping over logs etc. That’s all great for their brains, and also for a gorgeous photo backdrop which is why I recommend this location for photoshoots if you’re keen for greenery!
