  • The main gate into field is fitted with a combination lock, and the code will be sent to you by email 2 hours before the start of your booking. If you have not received a code then please get in contact with us

Inside the Field
  • Runmoor Dog Park has a dog resistant perimeter fence on all sides. We actively encourage you to let your dogs off the lead to make the most of the space and freedom!

  • Our fields can get muddy, particularly in winter. We recommend you wear suitable footwear; Wellingtons are recommended, especially during winter months
