As animal lovers ourselves we understand that it can often be a difficult task to find pet friendly places these day, especially in rented accommodation. Did you know an estimated 13 million households own a pet, and Britain’s pet population stands at around 65 million? It may be no surprise to you that we are a true nation of dog lovers. Many of our Northfields’ team are part of around 9 million people who keep our nations favourite as a pet in the UK.
But we are going to let you in on some of the best dog friendly places in and around Ealing. You don’t need to be a V.I.D. (Very Important Dog) to enjoy our personal picks of pet friendly places.
Best Dog Walking Areas
With more than 100 parks and open spaces to choose from, Ealing definitely doesn’t have a shortage; what with 1,900 acres of open green space right across our beautiful Borough!
But which ones are the best for you and your pooch?
Walpole & Lammas Park
Walpole Park is found at the edge of Ealing Broadway, behind Pitzhanger Manor House, with its 28 acres lovingly described as ‘the jewel in the crown’ of Ealing’s many parks. It’s also home to the Ealing Jazz & Comedy Summer Festival and the Pitzhanger Manor museum.
Lammas Park nearly adjoins with Walpole, and as well as offering brilliant dog walks it also has a bowling green, croquet pitch, tennis courts, children’s playground and play centre.
Currently in the process of restoration to its former Regency glory, Walpole Park and Lammas Park offer a delightfully relaxing dog walk for both owner and hound.
Considered a ‘canine congestion free zone’ Gunnersbury Park covers around 185 acres of leafy park and is located between Acton and Ealing in Hounslow, West London.
Open from 8am until dusk it has a large, free car park as well as a cafe that welcomes well-behaved dogs on leashes.
Bounded by Gunnersbury Avenue (A406) to the east and the Uxbridge Road to the north, Ealing Commons 42 acres are lined by Horse Chestnut Trees and an ancient Oak Tree, making it a perfectly picturesque spot for a dog walk.
There is also a beautiful rose garden, with funfairs setting up camp on the Common on Bank Holidays too.
