Off Leash Areas

Home > Property > Your Property > Pets > Off Leash Areas

Your dog may run off the leash in designated off leash areas in selected reserves around the municipality, but it must still be under your control
(e.g. obey voice commands).

All areas are signposted to designate the off leash area within a reserve. Dogs declared as dangerous or restricted breed type dogs are prohibited from off leash areas.

It is required by law that dog droppings must be removed and disposed of correctly. Dog poo bins are provided and owners have a responsibility to pick up after their dog.  Penalties apply for failure to pick up after your dog

Dogs are allowed off leash in the following parks:


Clarkes Point Reserve

Gladesville Reserve – Lower
