Maria uses Greenwich Park where there's loads of safe open space and interesting nooks and crannies for the dogs to explore.
Maria uses Ladywell Fields - the dogs love this natural urban greenspace and get a good toweling down if they decide to head off for a 100 freestyle dash in the Quaggy! (With owner's permission first of course, and as long as they don't need armbands.)
