Off leash exercise area unleashed by Hilltops Council

5/11/2019
Hilltops Council has just completed its first fenced off leash dog exercise area. The area is located in the south east portion of the Young Showground facility (the corner of Murringo and McDonnell’s Roads). The facility, being access via the showground, is equipped with dog owner seating and appropriate waste disposal bags to pick up after your dog. The facility is a ‘bring your own water’ site.
 
 
Leash Free areas are designed to allow dog owners to exercise their pets without a leash in a controlled open environment, not impacting on other recreational area users.

Dog owners are reminded that they are still required to control their dog before and after releasing them for exercise and they must clean up after their animals immediately.

Council acknowledge the Young Showground Land Manager Board for allowing this complex to be constructed within their grounds. As the facility is within the showground, there will be times during major events when access to the facility will be restricted. 
 
Any maintenance issues relating to this off leash area can be reported directly to Council on 1300 445 586.
