Took my dog for the first time a few weeks ago, was a "nervous first timer" and kept dog on lease but by following week, she was off-lease running around and enjoying the company of other dogs.

Mr Day could have sold his land to property developers but instead he gifted it to Hamilton for all dogs and their humans to enjoy. It's a glorious bit of riverside land where dogs and their owners can run off the leash.

I visited Day's Park as part of the Beneful Bark in the Park events. Day's park is a large grassy park where dogs can be off the leash and exercise. There is river access so dogs can swim in the river. If you are not a fan of dogs I wouldn't recommend visiting.
If the park had some permanent equipment or play areas for dogs I would give 5 star rating. Definitely the best dog park in Hamilton.

This park is a fabulous place to let your dog run off its leash. There's plenty of space with some hills thrown in to give a little extra exercise plus a lovely path if you just want to do circuits. We are there every morning and our little dog just loves it. It's also a very pretty spot for non-dog owners to enjoy the surrounds and stroll along the riverbank.

It doesn't matter if your are a visitor or a local resident you will be impressed with this picturesque Riverside Park.There are plenty of trees,paths and resting places for walkers joggers and dog owners. The willows along the Waikato riverbank provide a shaded area for all in the summertime. Entry and parking is available at various parts of River Road.
