Dog Exercise Areas

Dog Exercise Areas

It is important for your dogs to get adequate exercise in order to keep them happy and healthy.

The City recognises the need to have public places where dogs can be walked and encourages all residents to get active and head onto the streets and to the parks and reserves for some exercise. However, for the comfort and safety of all of the community it is important to remember that dogs must be held on a leash by a person capable of controlling the dog in any public place within the boundaries of the City of Vincent, except in the following approved dog exercise areas(Dogs are only allowed off leash in these areas if the reserve is not being used for an approved activity, e.g. cricket or football matches.) 


  • Britannia Road Reserve in its entirety: Bounded by the Mitchell Freeway; Bourke Street and Britannia Road.
  • Brentham/Bennelong Reserve - Between Brentham and Oxford Streets, south of Wylie Place


  • Robertson Park - Bounded by Fitzgerald, Palmerston, Stuart and Randell Streets

Remember you must carry a lead with you and the dog must be under effective control at all times. A dog will be deemed not under control if it chases or worries any person, their pet or wildlife.

Remember dogs are not permitted off lead in any street (this includes a verge area), or in any place without the property owner's permission.
