Ljubljana has two dog parks in the city centre, where your dog can run free and no leash is needed. One is located at Železna cesta and was constructed as a part of the North park, which covers approximately 900 m2. The second one stands at Pesarska cesta in Štepanjsko naselje. Most people come to the parks in the morning or late afternoon. Both parks have benches, where you can sit and relax while your dog runs around with his furry friends. parks are equipped with bins for dog droppings, as you are expected to clean up after your dog. Outside of the two parks, the dog has to be on a leash – the fines for unleashed dogs in the city range from 200 to 400 euros. The parks are not meant as training grounds, these popular gathering places near urban centres meet the needs of your dog for socialization and play.
