Council provides “dog friendly parks” where owners can exercise their dogs unleashed at any time. The fenced parks have been designed to provide interesting recreational environments for both dogs and owners as well as opportunities for rest and watering.
|On and Off Leash Areas:|
|Streets and Footpaths||Dogs must be on a leash at all times.|
|Open space (i.e. Reserves and Parks)||Dogs must be under effective control* but not necessarily on a lead unless signposted.|
|Children's Play Spaces||Dogs are prohibited from all play spaces to remove potential conflict between children and dogs and minimise the risk of serious injury.|
|Dog on Leash and Dog Free (prohibited) areas||Certain reserves have been identified as on leash or dog prohibited to ensure the community has equitable access to Council's open space. Dog on leash and dog prohibited areas are clearly signposted and detailed on the map refer "Dogs on Leash Areas Overview Map".|
|Dogs on the Beach||To ensure a consistent approach to dogs on the beach the following conditions apply:
Daylight Saving (October to March)
Non Daylight Saving (April to September)
*Effective control means your dog is close to you and can be controlled with voice command. If you don't think you could call your dog back under distraction of other dogs or other people, please do not take your dog off lead.
