There are a number of designated off lead areas in Queanbeyan. Some of these are listed below:

  • Southbar Road (the “Scar”): All of area, including the grassed area which has been especially fenced.
  • Edwin Land Parkway: This is located between Cooma Street and ends at River Drive.
  • High Street: The signposted area opposite the intersection of High Street and Thurralily Street.
  • Crest Road/Stuart Street: Water reservoir reserve.
  • Garry Owen Reserve/Baldhill Reserve: Nimmitabel Street.
  • Kinlyside Avenue: The drainage reserve opposite Darmody Place in Jerrabomberra.

All dogs must be under effective control when off lead.

Don't forget to scoop the poo

If your dog defacates in a public place it is a requirement for you to remove his faeces, failure to do so could result in a fine. It is therefore a good idea when walking your dog to take along some plastic bags with you for this task.

Designated off-lead areas provide “poo” bins for you to dispose of your dog’s droppings.
