Summer restrictions for dogs on beaches start today in Bayside.
The restrictions prohibit dogs on many Bayside beaches and foreshore areas during peak daylight hours from 1 November – 31 March.
Restrictions vary from beach to beach.
The seasonal changes aim to balance the needs of beach goers and dog owners over the busy warmer months.
Dog owners should check their favourite walking spot at off leash area for times and on/off leash restrictions.
Dogs and their owners can continue to enjoy all year round off-leash beach fun at Sandown Street, Sandringham Harbour (Hampton) and Ricketts Point between McGregor Avenue and southern end of the Beaumaris Yacht Club car park.
Dog owners must pick up after their dogs and have effective control of their dog at all times.
