New dog off-leash areas proposed for Kingsthorpe and Oakey

Toowoomba Regional Council is seeking community feedback on proposals to create designated, unfenced dog off-leash areas in Rosalie Walk Linear Corridor Parkland in Kingsthorpe and Cory Street Park in Oakey.

Toowoomba Regional Council (TRC) Environment and Community Services Portfolio Leader Cr Tim McMahon said the proposed areas would give dog owners a place to train, socialise and exercise their pets off-leash.

“Council currently provides 24 dog off-leash areas in parks across our Region where dogs can exercise and socialise leash-free with other dogs and dog park visitors,” Cr McMahon said.

“Council aims to strike a balance between dog owners who love to walk their dogs off-leash at our parks and other members of our community, particularly families, who also use the parks.

“If the proposed areas are approved, dogs visiting Rosalie Walk Linear Corridor Parkland and Cory Street Park will be required to be under effective control at all times and will not be allowed off-leash until they enter the off-leash areas.

“Council is now seeking community feedback on these proposals.

“You can have your say through our Your Say website or in writing until Monday 14 December 2020.”

Submissions should state support or objections to the proposals including the grounds of the submission and the facts and circumstances relied on in support of the grounds.

Submissions can be made by:

  • completing an online form via yoursay.tr.qld.gov.au
  • posting a hard copy to Toowoomba Regional Council, PO Box 3021 Toowoomba 4350
