Off-lead Parks and Reserves

Because our parks and reserves are used by many people for different purposes, dog owners must comply with certain regulations. Failure to do so may result in a substantial fine.

Regulations

  • Some off-lead areas can only be used during designated times, to allow for sports events or other community activities. Dogs are not permitted to run off-lead outside of these times.
  • When travelling to and from designated off-lead parks, your dog must be kept on a lead.
  • You must carry a lead which can control your dog if it behaves in a manner which threatens any person or animal.
  • There are a number of parks and reserves (including Central Park, Ardrie Park and Victoria Gardens) where dogs are only permitted off-lead on the oval. Dogs are not permitted to run off-lead anywhere else and must be kept off the garden beds.
  • Pick up after your dog. Bags and bins are supplied at designated areas.
  • Dogs are not allowed on sports grounds during sports club and school training and match times, or in children's playground areas.
  • Dogs are expected to be under control and non-threatening at all times.
  • All footpaths are on-lead areas.
