Off Leash Areas at KCC Park

Friday, 1 February 2019

We wish to inform members that whilst the small and large off leash areas at KCC Park are still accessible, they may not be secure for your dog and individuals enter at their own risk.  Appropriate signage has been placed on the entry gates to advise of this.

The off leash areas have been scheduled for an upgrade and further notification of this will follow in due course.

Keeping our dogs safe is the top priority and we know you feel the same. We thank you for your continued support and understanding.

New signage will be affixed before the weekend stating that both fenced areas may not be secure for your dog and individuals enter at their own risk.
