Dog off leash area

Council’s Local Law requires all dogs to be on a leash at all times when in public places, except in a designated off-leash area. Council has provided a number of off leash areas where dogs can exercise freely, play with their owners and socialise with other dogs.

While in an off leash area it is the owner’s responsibility to ensure the dog is under effective control at all times. It is important that you monitor your dog’s behaviour and ensure it does not cause a nuisance or become aggressive to other people or dogs.

Always clean up after your pet, even in off-leash areas, and scoop the poop! If you leave your pet’s droppings in a public place you may receive an on the spot fine. Being a responsible pet owner means that you care about the actions of your dog.

Council has adopted a few simple rules to make your visit to these off leash areas pleasant for you, your dog and other park users.

  • All dogs must have a valid Council registration tag attached to their collar.
  • Ensure you comply with all signs and boundaries and carry a leash at all times. You must leash your dog immediately if aggressive behaviour is demonstrated.
  • Dogs must be leashed at all times prior to entering and upon leaving the off leash areas.
  • Dogs must be under voice or signal control and in sight at all times. If your dog does not respond immediately, retrieve and leash it.
  • Keep your dog in the area designated so as not to destroy plants, wildlife and other resources in the park.
  • Respect other park users and clean up after your dog and place waste in the bins provided. Also fill in holes your dog digs as they create a safety hazard for others.
  • Dogs must not be off leash within 25 metres of a dog obedience area while classes are underway.
  • Dogs with a history of aggressive behaviour or declared dangerous dogs must be muzzled at all times when in a public place.
  • Dogs excluded from designated areas include regulated dogs and female dogs on heat.
