Dog Parks

As part of its drive to reduce the incidence of dog attacks in the Salisbury area, the City of Salisbury maintains and enforces a By-Law requiring all dogs to be leashed in parks and reserves at specified times.

All parks and reserves in the City of Salisbury require dogs to be walked on a leash between 8am and 6.30pm, however, the same parks and reserves are also available for off-leash activity between 6.30pm to 8am if the dogs are able to obey commands and remain under effective control whilst off-leash, that is controlled by command and the dog must be in close proximity, and you must be able to see the dog at all times.

In conjunction with these controls Council also provides dedicated dog parks where dogs can be exercised off leash at any time. The fenced parks have been designed to provide interesting recreational environments for both dogs and owners as well as opportunities for rest and watering. Currently there are ten parks available throughout the City and 8 small dog parks.

When using all dog parks please have regard to the rules and etiquette requirements and entry requirements for the small dog parks.

If you have any questions please contact us on (08) 8406 8222 or
