Canterbury-Bankstown is currently home to ten fenced off leash dog parks. This Plan will guide the ongoing management of these parks and supporting infrastructure in the City through provision, design and operation, while balancing the needs of all open space users.
The Off Leash Dog Park Action Plan supports the aspirations of the Community Strategic Plan and contributes to the Healthy and Active destination.
Our Community Strategic Plan, CBCity 2028, highlights the community’s aspiration to have accessible parks and open spaces, and promote healthy and active lifestyle. The Plan promotes parks for both, dogs and their owners to socialise and enjoy outdoor activities that are important for physical and mental health.
The development of this Plan was informed by a public survey conducted by Council in 2019 at the ten off leash dog parks. The survey invited the general community, dog owners and dog park users to comment on the existing facilities.
