Dog off leash areas

  • Dogs can run freely and play without restriction in an off-lead park, however they must remain under the owner's control at all times.
  • Owners must be within 50 metres of their pet.
  • Make sure any dogs using dog parks are registered with Council.
  • If your dog starts to become aggressive towards either people or other dogs you must put it on a leash. 
  • While in a dog park, dog owners must remove their dog's waste.
