OFF LEASH AREA IN GUNDAGAI
Council is calling for the public to comment on locations for off-leash dog areas in Gundagai. Currently there are no off-leash dog parks in the old Gundagai Shire area. Councils are required to provide off–lease areas to comply with the Companion Animals legislation. CGRC officers have identified some suitable locations within Gundagai. The area known as Sherwood Forest including Heydon Park and also Friendship Park in North Gundagai. Other options proposed are the riverbank area on the western side of the scout hall and Lindley Park in South Gundagai. Heydon Park which from time to time is used by sporting groups, would only be used as an off-leash area when organised sport is not utilising the park. Dog parks & off-leash areas can provide dogs with a secure environment to exercise and socialise with other dogs. Dogs benefit greatly from the chance to run freely and is also a great form of exercise for dog owners. Dog waste bins and bags will be provided in all off-leash areas, with signage erected to advise dog owners on etiquette and hours of use.
