Dog runs are basically fenced up areas where dogs can run unleashed.
Walking your dog on a leash every day is needed, but sometimes, you also want a safe space for your dogs to run and socialise with other dog friends. Dog runs are where you can do that. In Singapore, we have a total of 21 dog runs peppered all around the island.
We have rounded them up in one nifty listicle right here for you. TL;DR? We’ve also prepared a map where you can use to see which one is the nearest to you as well (last section).

1. Katong Park Dog Run
Katong Park Dog Run is one of the more well-known ones in Singapore. Besides a large fenced up area for your dog to socialise with other dogs, there is also a public toilet and a water point.
Despite its name, Katong Park is not within the vicinity of i12 Katong, but it is at Fort Road, the nearest MRT being Mountbatten.
The park is nicely connected to East Coast Parkway, which means that the beach is only around 15 minutes by foot. You could even go the other direction and walk to Gardens By The Bay in about 20 minutes.
As of 28 November 2019, a part of the dog run at Katong Park is closed as there are some PUB works ongoing. Katong Park Dog Run should be fully open by 30 June 2020.
Address: 59 Fort Road, S439105
2. Koon Seng Park (Joo Chiat Dog Run)
Nestled in a small corner at the junction of Tembeling Road and Koon Seng Road is a small neighbourhood dog run that is quite popular among east-siders.
Small to medium sized dogs can really enjoy a good run here, and pawrents can also hit up famous food spots in the Joo Chiat area like Dunman Food Centre, Song Kee Fishball Noodle and Mr and Mrs Mohgan’s Super Crispy Roti Prata.
There’s not a lot of shade here and no water points, so we recommend that you go in the late afternoon to evening.
Address: Near the junction of Tembeling Road and Koon Seng road. Opposite 30 Koon Seng Road S426975
3. Tampines Central Park Dog Run
The Tampines Central Park Dog Run is located right behind Our Tampines Hub. Unlike the newly minted integrated development, however, Tampines Central has been around for a much longer time. The Watermelon Playground and other cement playground structures are testament to that fact.
Here the dog run is smaller in size on flat ground. If you own a dog AND you play Pokemon, you’d also be happy to hear that the Tampines Central Park Dog Run is a great Pokemon Go raid spot.
Address: Tampines Central Park, near Block 856 Tampines Street 82, Singapore 520856
4. Simpang Bedok (Jalan Pari Burong) Dog Run
The dog run at Simpang Bedok is definitely one of the smallest ones, but there are a few benches within the dog run, which is sufficient for your dog to tire itself out and you to rest.
It’s in the neighbourhood near Simpang Bedok, famed for good food options such as Selegie Soya Bean, Jln Tua Kong Mee Pok, Soon Huat Bak Kut Teh and a ton of seafood and grill houses.
Address: At the corner junction of Jalan Pari Burong and Upper Changi Road
5. Bedok Town Park Dog Run
Near to Bedok Reservoir there is a small strip of park called Bedok Town Park and in this park, you’ll find a spacious dog run that’s surrounded by greenery.
It’s a quiet park, but there are also several fitness facilities dotted around this park. If you want to work up a sweat on a trip to the dog run, you can too.
If you walk down Bedok North Avenue 3, you will hit Bedok Reservoir, which can make for a nice waterfront walk.
6. Mariam Way Changi
This is he most eastern dog run in Singapore, located along Loyang Avenue.
Mariam Way is actually a residential estate lined with landed houses. The dog run is quite cosy and due to its far flung location, it is frequented by easties who stay in Pasir Ris/Simei areas.
There’s a regular community who is really friendly. If you have children, you can also bring them to the sandy Mariam Way Playground next to the dog run.
Address: Mariam Way Playground, Mariam Way
7. Interim Park Dog Run (Kembangan)
Unless you have googled it or you live in Kembangan, you probably will never know of this little quaint dog run.

Address: Near 9 Jalan Enam, 486132
8. Pasir Ris Dog Run (Next to Block 550)
Situated between Tampines Eco Green and Pasir Ris Town Park, it’s actually a great place to go jogging with your pooch. You can end it with a free run for your dog here.
Some reviews mention that the fence is a little low, so if you have a large dog, you might want to pay extra attention.
Address: Near Blk 550 Pasir Ris Street 51
9. West Coast Dog Run
The East may have the most number of dog runs, but the west has the biggest — West Coast Dog Run.

Address: 1 West Coast Park, 127711

14. Teck Ghee Neighbourhood Park Dog Run

Surrounded by HDB blocks, the Teck Ghee Neighbourhood Park Dog Run is a small-sized one that is probably better suited for small to medium sized dogs.
Address: Ang Mo Kio Avenue 10

Our Space at Tai Gin is at Balestier. It used to be barren plot under Toa Payoh South Flyover but the government has created a community space with a dog run park and 2 multi-purpose hard-floor courts.

Address: 16 Tai Gin Rd
16. Potong Pasir Avenue 1 Dog Run
Potong Pasir Avenue 1 Dog Run is very spacious with well-maintained grass patches.
Humans like the many footpaths that criss cross the dog park so that it is safe for them and they won’t step on poop landmines that inconsiderate owners leave behind.
There is a water point and several benches.
Address: Potong Pasir Avenue 1

20. Punggol Park Dog Park
There’s a small dog run at Punggol Park that has recently been opened up. While it states “Punggol Park”, it’s actually nearer to Hougang than it is to Waterway Point, so it’s really great for dog pawrents who live in the general Northeast Area.
