Dog parks and leash-free areas

Your dogs should always be kept secured on a leash when in public areas for the safety of your dog and other users.  All walkways and cycleways require dogs to be secured. Council provides several areas where owners can take their dogs for a run off the leash. These include three fenced areas that include agility equipment.

To ensure all of these areas are safe and friendly for everyone, there are some rules governing their use. 

Whilst dogs are permitted off the leash in these areas, owners are still legally liable for any damage or attacks that their dog may commit.

Rules for using Leash-Free Areas

  • No declared dangerous or menacing dogs or restricted breeds;

  • No greyhounds;

  • Only two dogs to be off the leash at any one time;

  • Be considerate and share the use of the facility;

  • Owners must clean up after their dogs;

  • Vaccinations must be current; and

  • Dogs must always be under the effective control of a competent person who is over 16 years of age.
