Dog walkers are one of the key users of green space and responsible dog owners are welcome in all our parks. However, dogs are not allowed inside fenced play areas and are excluded from land used by schools. These areas are clearly marked to let owners know. Some green spaces, such as cemeteries and allotments require dogs to be kept on leads. Where dogs are allowed to roam freely it is a requirement that the dog walkers will have full control over them and pick up any dog waste.


Drones cannot take off or land on our parks and open spaces without permission from Southampton City Council. Permission will generally only be granted where usage of a drone aids survey work and/or to undertake a professional service such as at festivals and events or filming to promote Southampton’s open spaces.
