Aeroglen’s Touch Park
Touch Park in Aeroglen is the home of touch football in Cairns. It’s a great place to take your dogs. For kids, it has a playground and a BMX track.
It is a great public space that is controlled and maintained by the local Council and enjoyed on a daily basis by local residents.

Touch Park Dog Park
There is also a fenced Council ‘dog off-leash’ area located at the southern end of the football fields. It is between the southern boundary of the sporting fields and the southern vehicle access (between Aeroglen Drive and the mangrove lined creek). There are even doggy clean up bags available.
While this dog off-leash area is fully fenced please note dogs that have been declared dangerous or menacing are not allowed in this area.
At the south end of the park is a carpark and public toilets for the convenience of parking and for those accessing the yellow arrow walking trail.
