Dog exercise areas
The Town has a number of dog exercise areas. For the enjoyment and safety of everyone, when walking your dog in a reserve, you must keep it under effective control. This means keeping your dog close to you and not allowing it to bother other people or animals. Even if your dog is being playful, others may feel uneasy with its behaviour. Remember, some people do not like to be approached by dogs.
As a courtesy, the Town also provides dog waste bags in these areas to promote and encourage correct practice. The Town encourages dog owners to provide their own dog waste bags, available at most supermarkets. The Town replaces dog waste bags toward the end of each week. If there are no bags available, it is still the dog owner's responsibility to act responsibly.
The parks and reserves pinpointed on the map are considered dog exercise areas. You can find out more about the available facilities and locations on their by selecting the location and going through to the relevant park listing page.
