Smelling like daisies

Dog lying on its back in daisies

Tuesday, October 3, 2017

Pooch loving Bayside provide more than 1.8 million poo bags to residents and their four-legged family members in our off leash parks and reserves – that’s more than 156,000 per month!

With almost 11,000 registered doggie residents, Council’s commitment to keeping these parks and reserves smelling like daisies – not poo – converts to an almost $120,000 per year commitment for bag costs, dispensers and servicing.

The City has a total of 75 dispensers in 28 of its parks and reserves - each dispenser checked and refilled on a weekly basis.

Dendy Park has 11 dispensers dotted around its boundary and Elsternwick Park has 10 making them the busiest open air toilets for man’s best friend in the City.

Summer month restrictions for dogs on beaches commence on 1 November 2017
