Meadowbank Bridge, also known locally as the ‘John Whitton Bridge’ will be temporarily closed for pedestrian access between 9:00 to 11:00 am on Friday 10 February 2023.
Please be advised that the Blenheim Park dog off-leash area will be closed from 6 February 2023 to 19 March 2023 for maintenance works.
Alternate off-leash areas within close proximity can be located at North Ryde Common and Pidding Park.
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.
See maps for off-leash areas within each park.
To protect our local native wildlife, certain areas within City of Ryde have been declared Wildlife Protection Areas. These areas are Field of Mars Reserve, Kittys Creek corridor and Terrys Creek corridor. No dogs are allowed in Field of Mars Reserve. At Kittys Creek and Terrys Creek, dogs must be on leash along established tracks.
