Exercise your dog and your kids at the same time
Terrara Park is a large recreation area in Vermont South. It is used extensively for sport training and matches all year round. It also has cricket practice nets.

In addition to this, it is a designated off leash dog park (dogs must be under effective voice control). It is such a huge area that although at times there can be a lot of dogs running around, it never seems to pose too much of a problem.

To the side of the park, behind the sports facilities is a small children's playground. The playground has three slides of various heights, swings, a seesaw rocker and some climbing equipment. Whilst not extensive, there is certainly enough to keep the kids occupied for a while, especially if you are combining your visit with a walk for the dog, or a kick of a ball on the sports field.

Parking is plentiful at Terrara Park but unfortunately, the toilets are more often than not locked. This can be challenging, particularly for small children. There are also no picnic tables, although there are some benches dotted around the park and at the children's playground.

If you are looking for a place to give your dog a run and exercise your children at the same time, Terrara Park fits the bill.
