An off leash area is a designated public area in which dog owners can exercise dogs without a leash. These are the only areas in the City of Ryde where dogs are permitted to run free without a lead.

 It is recognised that dogs benefit greatly from a chance to run freely and socialise with other dogs as it reduces boredom, pent-up energy, barking and other nuisance behaviour. 

Rules for Off Leash Areas

  • All dogs using the area must be able to be controlled without a leash, i.e. return to handler on command

  • Off leash activities permitted only in the designated area approved by Council
  • Dogs are only permitted in the off leash area as indicated on the sign-posts at each off leash area
  • Dogs that are declared dangerous by Council and are aggressive and restricted dogs as indicated under the NSW Companion Animals Act 1998 are not permitted to use the off leash area
  • Dog owners/controllers must remove all dog faeces deposited by the dog under their control
  • Dogs must not be encouraged to attack
