Off-leash Dog Areas

Fenced off-leash areas

There are seven existing dedicated off-leash areas in Hornsby Shire:

All the areas are fully fenced with double gate entrances and have waste bins, dog waste bags and water.

Note: Hornsby Dog Training Club has exclusive use of Rofe Park on Sunday from 12:30pm to 4:30pm. No other dogs will be allowed on the park during this time frame.

Unfenced off-leash area

The site at Lyne Rd Reserve, Cheltenham, has water, waste bags and a bin, but no fence.

Shared off-leash areas

Two other shared sites are available.

At both of these sites dogs are NOT PERMITTED during organised sport and games or maintenance activities.

Using off-leash areas

To ensure off-leash areas are safe and enjoyable for everyone, please consider other users and:

  • Keep your dog in sight at all times;
  • Make sure your dog is under control by voice;
  • Pick up and dispose of all waste correctly;
  • Do not let your dog rush at or harass other dogs and people;
  • Keep your dog on a lead until it is inside the fenced area and put it back on a lead before leaving.
