The Town has completed the installation of all the new signs relating to dogs in our parks and reserves! These signs have colour coded messages to guide you.
Green signs indicate a dog off-lead area, but please remember that your dog must remain within your control at all times, even when off lead. The parks that we share with our sporting groups are also dog off-lead areas but are restricted. This means that you can have your dog off the lead, except when these areas are been used for organised community or sporting events.
Yellow signs are shown in parks and reserves where your dog is still welcome but must be held by a lead the whole time your dog remains in this area. Please also note dogs are required to be on lead in all public places other than designated dog exercise areas. An example of a public place is a road.
Red signs are erected in dog prohibited areas where dogs are not permitted at any time. This restriction also applies to children’s playgrounds although they may not always be sign posted.
This means that if you and your friendly pooch are in breach of our local laws, our Ranger’s may issue you with an infringement. The easiest way to avoid this is to know the various zones where you can walk your dog on or off lead, and to comply with these. Having effective control of your dog can help prevent dog attacks. Dog attacks do occur in Mosman Park – unfortunately we have had 7 reported attacks this year so far. By observing and complying with our new signage, we hope to avoid dog attacks in the future, with your help.
If you are unsure about where in the Town you can and can't walk your dog, on or off the lead, please consult our website which has detailed maps of the various zones, or you can download our map and brochure or pick one up from the Town's Administration Centre during office hours 8.30am to 4.30am Monday to Friday. Let's all stay safe, pick up our pooches' poops and enjoy the fun and health benefits of dog ownership in Mosman Park.
