Thank you to everyone who provided invaluable feedback during April and May this year on how dogs should be managed in Callan Park. Your feedback has helped shape the draft Companion Animal Management Plan (CAMP) which will be on public exhibition from 6 December 2021 to 9 February 2022.
The draft CAMP provides direction for Greater Sydney Parklands to support its management and regulation of companion animals in Callan Park, including clearly identifying on and off-leash areas for dogs and the required infrastructure, amenities and experiences for dogs and their owners.
The draft CAMP aims to balance the interests of all park users, including dogs and their owners, while minimising the potential for conflict between dogs and other users. Essentially it is a plan whereby all who visit and use Callan Park can share the space equitably.
You can now view and make a submission on the draft plan.
For any questions and information about the plan, please visit the draft Companion Animal Management Plan page.
The draft CAMP has been developed for the 38 hectares of land managed by Greater Sydney Parklands. It does not apply to the 22 hectares of land owned by NSW Health.
Currently, dogs must be on leash in all accessible areas of Callan Park except for 3 designated off-leash zones in the sporting grounds when organised sporting activities are not taking place.
