Dog restrictions relaxed – Wellington Point Reserve and W.H. Yeo Park 

After a period of public consultation, Council has adopted changes to its animal management local law that relax dog restrictions at two popular parks – W.H. Yeo Park, Victoria Point and Wellington Point Reserve.

Now dog owners can walk their dogs on-leash at these parks any time during the week, and before 9am and after 4pm on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays.

Dogs are still prohibited on Thompson’s Beach, adjacent to W.H.Yeo Park, and still need to be kept on a leash on the sand bar between Wellington Point Reserve and King Island.
