Dog Walking Areas

At council, we recognise the wonderful part our four-legged friends play in our lives and society. There are many places where you can enjoy a walk with your dog.

Dogs must be on a leash at all times unless in a sign-posted designated off-leash area.

Pick up your dog's waste!

Dog waste bags and dispensers are provided as a courtesy to dog owners. Please be considerate of others and only take what you need. It's still the responsibility of the dog owner to carry a supply of bags to pick up and dispose of waste appropriately in public.

You will find dog waste bag dispensers at these locations:

Coleambally: Curlew Park, Skate Park (along the walking track) and Coleambally Lions Park

Darlington Point: CWA Park, Lions Park, Fig Tree Park and Adrian Douglas Park

Jerilderie: Jerilderie Lake Walking Track, Luke Park and RSL Park

Always have a bag with you, just in case there's none available. Dispose of your dog's waste properly.

Off-Leash Areas

There are off-leash areas available in each of the three towns within the Murrumbidgee Council area. 

Coleambally: At the end of Kookaburra Avenue - forest area

Darlington Point: The second oval at the Recreation Reserve, King Street

Jerilderie: Around the Jerilderie Lake from Bundoora Avenue to the Playground area - as signposted

Off-leash area rules

When using an off-leash area, there are still rules which apply to keep it safe for everyone.

  • The person responsible for the dog must be physically able to control them.
  • Dogs must be on a leash before entering and leaving an off-leash area.
  • Assess the area before allowing your dog off leash.
  • Your dog must be supervised at all times, return to you when called (recall), and remain visible to you while exercising.
  • Always be considerate of others and do not allow your dog to worry or attack another person or animal.
  • Dogs showing signs of aggression or anti-social behaviour must immediately be leashed and removed.
  • Your dog must wear a collar with its tag attached at all times.
  • Ensure your dog does not chase or harm wildlife.
  • Dog waste must be disposed of appropriately.
  • Supervise children at all times.
