Animal Exercise Areas

Council has three designated areas to exercise your dog off leash at any time of the day, including swimming areas.

The law requires that your dog must be in close proximity to you and under effective control at all times and that you must dispose of dog poo in a suitable manner.  For your convenience Council has provided dog litter bins at the entrance to each of the designated dog off leash areas:

In all other Council parks, reserves and Coles Beach dogs are required to be on a lead and under effective control at all times.

Please note that dogs (except for guide dogs or assistance animals) are prohibited from all sporting grounds, the Mersey Bluff Precinct and Bluff Beach (below the walkway and the grassed area including the playground and skate park).  The walkway connecting these areas is all on lead.

For further information please refer to Council’s Dog Management Policy below.
