I've lived in Horsham all my life but until I became a dog owner had only ever visited Buchan once .....now we are regulars . Parking is free and as long as you love dogs this is a great place to go . The lake...More
Love this place! its so nice for dog walking! - wouldn't really recommend it for people who don't like dogs, as this is dog heaven! - they have a dipping pool for dogs as they are not allowed in the main lake where the ducks...More

I have been coming to Buchan Park since I was in Primary School when we would go on organised pond dipping adventures at the Nature Centre.
I have always loved this park and it was heart breaking when there was a massive fire here in...More
We live a short walk from here. We recently bought a puppy and it’s the most ideal place to take him! The lakes are stunning, there’s lots of friendly people with dogs and children. Anyone of any age would enjoy a wonder round!
Great place to walk the dogs, especially when everywhere else is so muddy! Plenty of poo bins so absolutely no excuse not to pick up after them, although sadly some still don't! You can venture off track into the woods if you fancy a longer...More

Hello Ragaman86, Buchan Country Park is an excellent place to walk your dog. However you must bear in mind that dogs at Buchan must be kept under control at all times and in all areas of the park. So if your dog is likely to run off, chase wildlife or be aggressive then we would ask you to keep it on a lead and if appropriate keep the dog muzzled. You could also look into the Yellow Dog UK Project (TripAdvisor will not let me post a link so you will have to search for it).
I hope that is of help and hope you enjoy your visit(s).
