Dogs in our parks and off-leash areas

How do you use Glen Eira parks and reserves? To play sport, visit a playground, exercise your dog, relax on the grass, use the outdoor fitness equipment...?? Whatever your means, how is this enhanced or impacted by the Snoopy or Scooby-Doo playing in your local park?

We are currently reviewing the provision of areas within our parks and reserves where dogs can and cannot be off-leash. As most of our parks and reserves are used in many ways, it’s important to realise that dog off-leash areas are just as important as dog on-leash areas. Our aim is to provide appropriate balance of these two types of areas, and we require your input to ensure this is achieved.

The purpose of this review is largely to reflect upon and update the Dog off-leash areas in the City of Glen Eira report that was prepared in 2011, specifically to ensure the dog off-leash areas meet the needs of both dog owners and non-dog owners. This 2011 report can be viewed in the Document Library to the right of the page.

This review will consider:

  • retaining existing dog off-leash areas, with the addition of the recently constructed exclusive dog off-leash park on the western side of Caulfield Racecourse;
  • opportunities to increase dog off-leash areas within some parks;
  • feedback on public lighting of off-leash parks; and
  • feedback on signage and awareness of dog off-leash areas and their use.

So whether you have a fur baby of your own, like to pat but not pick up poop, or are completely allergic to dogs - then we want to hear from you! Complete the survey below to tell us what works for you.

If you have any questions or wish to provide your feedback outside of this online survey, contact Council’s Recreation and Open Space Department on 9524 3333 or email recservices@gleneira.vic.gov.au

The opportunity to provide feedback is available until Monday 30 September 2019.
