Off leash Areas
Council understands the importance of exercising and socialising your pet and has provided a number of designated "off leash" areas across the city where responsible pet owners can safely exercise their pets.
Dogs must be leashed at all times prior to entering and upon exiting the off leash site. It is also important to stay near your pet and constantly monitor them when in an off leash area, especially in the vicinity of children.
Even in off leash areas, it is important to stop your dog from causing a nuisance.
At no time should your dog impede other people's enjoyment.
