7 Dog-Friendly Parks in Jakarta and Around Jakarta!
Jakarta has recently become more open to dogs, but for dog owners who want to let their dogs stretch their legs, finding a dog-friendly park can be tricky. For hygiene and aesthetic reasons, the city has recently banned dogs from entering popular parks such as Taman Senopati and Ancol Eco Park.
Thankfully, dog parks are opening elsewhere, from malls to cafes. Some even have pools and obstacle courses to keep your furry friend fit and healthy, while others have pet shops, grooming salons, and dog training consultation centers.
Here are some of our dog park recommendations around the Jakarta Metropolitan Area.
1. COMO Park
COMO Park has an open space where you can take off your dog’s leash for much-needed zoomies and play-fights with new furry friends. You can also join in and the fun and chat up other dog lovers and share some tricks or even stories!
If you need some shade from the heat, grab a cone of au naturel Italian gelato from Gelato Secrets. Or watch the dogs from afar as you take a sip from Say Something Coffee’s selection. In need of something a little more fulfilling? Enjoy a slice of New York-style pizza from Pizza Place!

It’s also an ideal area for weekend walks with your canine friend. We recommend coming in during the mornings to avoid large crowds of people.
