Re­serve a place for dogs

Southern Gazette (Belmont) - - NEWS - Bron­wyn Dono­van

ED­WARD Millen Re­serve has been added to a list of 19 parks in the Town of Vic­to­ria Park which be

listed as dog ex­er­cise ar­eas fol­low­ing pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion.

The Town unan­i­mously voted to en­dorse the new list of dog ex­er­cise ar­eas as

part of a re­view of its Dog Lo­cal Law at last week’s or­di­nary coun­cil meet­ing.

Most of the parks and re­serves in the amend­ment are al­ready des­ig­nated as

dog ex­er­cise ar­eas, in which dogs can be ex­er­cised on and off leads.

An of­fi­cer’s re­port said “dog ex­er­cise ar­eas are reg­u­larly pa­trolled by

rangers to en­sure that all users are re­spect­ing the rights of oth­ers”.

Pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion on the law is from Au­gust 25 to Septem­ber 24.
