Have your say on dogs in Heritage Park Mullumbimby

Feedback closes 3 June 2024

Heritage Park dog off leash areas

We are asking for your input on options for the off-leash dog area at Heritage Park Mullumbimby.

Take a look at the options below and provide your feedback using the online form.

Current off-lead areas

Currently dogs are allowed to be off lead in a section of Heritage Park, that includes the children’s playground.

Maintaining this space as a dog off leash area is not possible because:

  • Dogs off-leash must stay 10m away from a playground and 5m away from a pedestrian path.
  • A pedestrian path will soon be constructed through the middle of the designated off-leash area.

Options for dog exercise areas

We'd like you to consider the following options and then provide your feedback using the online form.

  • Now that we have a new off-leash dog area in Mullumbimby near the community gardens, do we need to retain the current off-lead dog exercise area in Heritage Park? 
  • Do we fence the off-leash dog area?
  • Do we move the off-lead area further away from the children’s playground where it can remain unfenced?
  • Do we allow dogs to walk on-lead through the Maslen Arboretum?

Information received as part of this consultation will be provided to the Council as part of a report. Councillors will decide on the next steps.

The following survey will take around five minutes to complete.
