- must pick up and dispose of your dog's faeces.
All dogs are prohibited within:
- 10 m of any play equipment for the use of children
- 10 m of any apparatus provided for the preparation of food or for the consumption of food by humans ie barbecue areas
- an area set aside for the playing of organised games ie sporting fields
The leash-free exercising of greyhounds in Council parks and reserves is prohibited.
Leash-free areas are provided at Paul Park, Pilcher Park, Wirrabarra Walk, Rosewood Oval, Ridley Oval and Bloomfield Park. You can find the location of Orange's leash-free areas in the maps in this Leash_Free_Brochure (264 KB)
