​​​​​​​Pets are welcome at most local parks, however please remember to keep your dog on a leash unless the reserve is classified as a 'dog off-leash area'.

Walking your dog keeps both you and your pet fit and healthy – in fact, dog owners are 68% more likely to get their recommended exercise than those without one!​

In accordance with the Companion Animals Act and the Local Government Area Act 1993, we have a number of parks where dogs can run around off-leash.
