Hollow Ponds c     Walthamstow Marshes - June     Lloyd park a

Nestled in the Lea Valley, Waltham Forest has great places to walk your dog – from Green Flag marshes to extensive woodland, as well as more formal parks. Here’s the place to look for inspiration on where to go next in Chingford & Woodford Green, Leyton & Leytonstone, Walthamstow and further afield. You’ll find lists of green spaces where your pooch can be walked (mostly) off lead, and WF4Dogs members share their favourites.


When walking, please remember:

– Pick up your poo – dog waste can be disposed of in any Waltham Forest or Epping Forest litter bin.

– Dogs can’t be walked everywhere off lead, and in some places – such as children’s playgrounds – dogs are banned entirely. See Waltham Forest council’s dog control orders for details.

– As in any urban setting, always consider your own personal safety.

**New** Days Out with Dogs & Kids offers just that – great days out where every member of the family is allowed (albeit the four-legged ones often on lead only).
