On Lead & Off Lead Areas
On Lead Areas
All dogs must be on a chain, cord or leash not exceeding 2 metres in length in all public places other than a park or reserve.
Dogs need to be on a lead while being walked on a footpath or road on a chain, cord or leash not exceeding 2 metres in length. This includes road related areas, such as the median strip area of Alexandra Avenue, Rose Park.
In the interest of community safety and enjoyment it is recommended (although not enforceable) that all dogs are on a chain, cord or leash not exceeding 2 metres in length within 20 metres of:
- Playgrounds and play equipment or;
- Organised sporting activities.
Off Lead Areas
All council’s parks and reserves are off lead areas but dogs must be exercised under effective control as per the Dog and Cat Management Act 1995.
The dog(s) must respond to the owner's commands, be in close proximity to the owner and the owner must be able to see the dog at all times.
Council has a designated enclosed dog park on Conyngham Street, Glenside.
