Dog On and Off Leash Areas

The Town of Gawler will be getting its first dog park at Clonlea Reserve. This will be supported with the introduction of 'On and Off' Leash areas across Gawler’s many parks, reserves and walking and cycling trails. Whether for recreation or for improving health and wellbeing everyone will be able to enjoy our welcoming open spaces.
Consultation Dates:
Opens 07 Feb 2018 — Closes 28 Feb 2018


The introduction and development of proposed on and off leash areas has been given considerable thought and has been driven by the outcomes of the Dog’s in Gawler Report, community engagement and the Town of Gawler’s Animal Management Plan 2012 – 2017 key strategies for on leash areas.

Council is now seeking feedback on the introduction of the proposed on and off leash areas.

Click HERE to see a geographic aerial map of the Town of Gawler showing all parks and reserves across the Town of Gawler identifying proposed on and off leash areas. Additionally, detailed aerial maps of individual reserves and the spreadsheet of each reserve titled "Proposed On Leash - Off Leash Areas and Shared Timed Areas" are also included.

The introduction of widespread changes across the Town of Gawler will offer options for on and off leash and shared use of parks and reserves. These changes have been proposed to seek a satisfactory outcome for both dog owners and non-dog owners.
