Where to let my dog run free in Basel?
The boy is stretching his legs and needs to run free, however it seems line free areas are limited, certainly in the city.
Amongst the many places I've visited, two places that stand out are:
Lange Erlen (the banks of the Weise) which is pretty much perfect for a dog, no roads, plenty of woods and grass, an accessible river and a lot of dog interaction.
The Birs, an accessible river, lots of dogs, plenty of space to run off, not as expansive as Lange Erlen, bordered in places by roads.
In a week or so his rabies jab is 'valid' for France and he'll be up and down the Petite Camargue canal.
Are there any other areas in/near Basel to let a dog run free?
I was told about Sankt Margarethen by Bruderholz, but upon inspection (by bike, no dog) it seems to be some fields left to grass by the farmer, so not sure if the dogs are allowed on them or not.
All suggestions (apart from 'feck arf!') much appreciated.
Here he is in the Hallwilersee yesterday, swims like a dolphin, albeit a furry one.
