NEW Click here to check out comments for this listing added by Doogle users
There are a number of entrances to Totara Park, the entrance on Goodwood Drive (near the driveway to the look-out area) takes you straight into an off-leash area on one of the Bridle trails (and its miles away from the parks main "picnic" area which I would keep well away from with our 4 legged friends). Park on Goodwood Drive and walk up the hill behind the stone wall to the park entrance gate but beware of car security in the area - cars get broken into here.
There are a whole lot of paths/tracks you can follow through the park, through farmland, native bush, beside streams, even water holes for dogs to swim in, just check signs as you wander in and out of different areas for the leash restricted areas (particularly bush areas which are on-leash). Farmland areas are off leash but beware of cow-poop eating☺. Ticks are also a bit of a problem at certain times of the year. See following link for more information on the park: http://www.manukau.govt.nz/default.aspx?id=10413 There is a map in PDF format on the webpage showing the parks layout. Lots of doggie regulars, great for k9 socialising and friendly people too. Even worth a visit for those on the other side of AKL.
