Dogs and playgrounds don’t mix

Have you checked out our amazing new inclusive playground in Thomas Street, Hampton yet? Everyone can play, except your dog. Please leave your dog at home or have it on leash anywhere in this park.

With so many of us stuck in Melbourne these school holidays, this fabulous new playground is very popular. Please work together to share the equipment and shelters so everyone can enjoy themselves.

We have many off leash areas for your four-legged friends, especially during winter when beaches are off leash 24/7. Please give families space to safely enjoy Thomas Street playground without furry family members trying to get in on the action. The whole of Thomas Street reserve is a designated on leash area.

A friendly reminder that dogs cannot be off leash within 20 metres of any Bayside playground, permanent picnic or barbecue area.

Explore these other great off leash areas so your dog can roam free with plenty of space.

Local Laws Officers will be visiting Thomas Street reserve regularly over the busy school holiday period, so if you’ve found with an off leash dog anywhere in the area, significant fines may apply.
