Dog Exercise Areas

Dogs require regular exercise; however, there can be conflict between dog owners and other park users. We ask that you respect other people’s rights to use reserves and beaches when exercising your dog.

Dogs are welcome at Bulls Domain (just keep them off the kids playground and playing fields)

When setting up “Exercise and Prohibited areas” the Council has an obligation under the Dog Control Act 1996 to have regard to the exercise and recreational needs of dogs and to minimise danger, distress and nuisance to the community.

In exercise areas, including beaches, dog owners can exercise their dogs off-leash and must:

  • Keep the dog under direct control at all times
  • Remain in the designated dog exercise area with their dog
  • Pick up dog faeces and place them in a rubbish bin

The following areas within the District are designated dog exercise areas:

  • Bulls Domain - Domain Road, Bulls
  • Turakina Domain - Cameron Road, Turakina
  • Taihape Memorial Park - Kokako Street, Taihape
  • Robin Street - Taihape
  • Sir James Wilson Park - Rira Street, Marton
