Charity Creek Cascades - Dog Off-Leash Trial

Submissions closed on 06 September 2023, 11:59 PM


At it’s meeting on 26 July 2022, Council resolved to conduct a 12-month trial for dog off-leash use at Charity Creek Cascades at 55 Linton Avenue, West Ryde.

When will the trial take place?

The dog off-leash trial will run from Wednesday 7 September 2022 until Wednesday 6 September 2023. As part of this trial, Council has installed a dog bowl, dog waste bin and bag dispenser.

Can Council consider fencing for this dog off-leash area?

Unfortunately, fencing of the off-leash area will not be possible at this site.

This is due to the park being identified as a flood risk zone and the potential impact it could have on water flow in the park and to surrounding properties. 

During the trial, Council would like to hear your thoughts on the dog off-leash facilities, what you like and any ideas or suggestions for improvement. See below on how you can Have Your Say.
