Where can my dog be off lead?

There are many dog friendly reserves, parks and times on the foreshore where dogs can be off lead if they are under effective control. This means your dog needs to be under voice control, within sight and in close proximity to you at all times.

If you can’t call your dog away from another person or dog, don’t let them off lead yet.

Please also be courteous of others sharing the off lead space with you – call them away from other dogs or people unless those dogs or people obviously seek out the interaction.

All reserves are default off lead zones for dogs under effective control (excluding those above, or unless otherwise signed). 

Here is a list of off lead dog parks within Charles Sturt:

  • Tedder Reserve Pooch Park, Findon Road Flinders Park (Toilet facilities & off-street parking)
  • Sam Johnson Reserve Puppy Park, Bollingbroke Avenue Renown Park
  • Albert Greenshields Dog Park, Greenshields Place Brompton (Toilet facilities & off-street parking, 2 separate dog areas)
  • River Torrens Linear Park, Findon Road Flinders Park
  • St Clair Oval 3 and 4**, St Clair Recreation Reserve,Woodville Road Woodville

**During sporting events St Clair Oval 3 and 4 are on lead zones

These parks are open all hours, have public lighting, and again, are for dogs under effective control.

Regardless of the space, dogs must be on a lead (2m or less) within 5m of any playground.

Lead laws on the foreshore

Dogs must be on lead (2m or less) on our foreshore (Semaphore Park to West Beach) between 10am and 8pm during daylight savings period (approximately October to April).

Outside of those times, dogs may be off lead on the foreshore if they are under effective control.

Regardless of the space, dogs must be on a lead (2m or less) within 5m of any playground.
