Proposed restriction

  • Compliance will be subject to customer reports of non-compliance and investigated by a ranger.


  • Wetlands in our region have matured and established since they were initially developed.
  • Many are now home to a variety of species of plants and wildlife some of which are vulnerable or endangered. Permitting dogs off-leash allows them to interfere with habitats, disturb nesting birds, chase wildlife and crush vegetation.
  • Keeping dogs on-leash and staying within the designated paths protects our wildlife and allows young plants to grow.
  • By protecting the proposed areas with dogs on-leash, dog owners can assist in preserving the long-term health of our wetland environments.
  • This site is comprised of four ponds adjacent to a drainage line and RA Pearce Reserve.
  • Twenty eight native fauna species have been recorded here, including the Royal Spoonbill (large wading bird species), which is rated as vulnerable in the Adelaide and Mt Lofty Ranges Region.
