Casa Permai Central Park
Located in Tanjung Bungah, this park is perfect for those who just want to sit and relax whilst your pet(s) run around in an open, even ground. It is also an ideal location for owners to play frisbee or catch with their dog rather than just simply strolling around the park as the main form of exercise.
Lebuhraya Rose Park
Also known as ‘Rose Avenue’, this park is located in a leafy neighbourhood in Georgetown, and is a great place to take your dog for a quick stroll, especially if they are older in age as the ground is flat. However, keep in mind that it is a residential area (hence, there are many cars and people around), so always be on the look-out for your pet!
This small yet spacious Japanese Garden is located amongst many other gardens, making it an ideal place for those who fancy a serene stroll with their pup around a picturesque environment. Boasting with greenery that includes lush green trees and flourishing flowers, it is a lovely place to walk, play, and exercise with your beloved canine friend.
