Ernest Johnson Reserve South Perth

Off The Lead Dog Exercise Area | Outdoor Gym | Kids Playground | Toilets | Seating | BBQs | Water Fountains with Dog Bowls

Ernest Johnson Reserve South Perth is a large park with a big dog exercise area plus an outdoor gym so both you and your dog can get in some activity. Note: your dog is required to be on a lead at all times during sporting events and activities.


This park is a beautiful shady park and sporting reserve with lots of manicured grassed areas and is an off the lead park. There are also BBQs within the park with seating and lots of shade, so it's the perfect place to enjoy an off the lead play and a bbq or picnic with your dog.

What's unique about this park is the outdoor gym within the kids playground area. The playground is very narrow with a walkway through it, and dogs are allowed on the footpath area on a lead so you can enjoy a work out with your dog nearby.

The outdoor crossfit gym has kettle bells, rings and bars and there are charts with lots of exercises to do with the gym equipment at both ends. There are also boxes you can sit on or use to knock out some box jumps.

The pathway goes through the playground area too, so it's a good park if you have kids and want to bring your dog along to the park. You can have your dog on the path and be able to keep an eye on the kids while they play too.

An automatic toilet is found across the main oval at the clubrooms and is open to the public, even when sporting events are not on. A couple of water fountains with dog bowls can also be found near the bbqs and playground.

This is a beautiful park for the whole fur family to enjoy some activity or to stay a while longer and enjoy a bbq breakfast, lunch or dinner in the park.
