Free roam, on leash and prohibited areas for pets


Frankston City has many free roams and on leash areas for dogs. There are also areas where pets are prohibited.

When exercising your dog in parks and reserves it’s important that they are fully supervised, meaning:

  • you carry a plastic bag and pick up after your dog (bins are provided at most free roam locations)
  • always keep your dog on lead, unless in a designated free roam area
  • keep your dog away from garden beds and playgrounds
  • avoid any sporting events or other community activities while in progress
  • carry a leash in free roam areas and keep your dog under control to make sure they are non-threatening.

If you can’t control your dog in these situations, then you can not take your dog off its lead, even in a free roam area. You can teach your dog to obey your voice or hand control by practicing in a private enclosed area.
