Boroondara has many areas where you can take your dog for a run off the lead.

You can use these designated areas, provided you:

  • carry a leash at all times
  • don't allow your dog to worry or threaten any person or animal
  • bring your dog under your control immediately if it threatens any person or animal
  • keep your dog at least 30m away from in-use barbecues or picnic areas, public meetings or sporting events
  • don't allow your dog within a playground and keep it on a lead within 10m of the perimeter of a playground
  • pick up after your dog with a suitable plastic bag and place it in a bin (you can be fined if you don't clean up after your pet).

Using a shared space

Everyone who uses a shared space is responsible for the safety of those around them. For example:

  • Dog owners need to have their dog under effective control
  • Bike riders need to travel at a speed and in a manner that enables them to avoid people and/or animals
  • Pedestrians need to be mindful of activities around them.
