City of Knox rules:
Dogs may be off lead in a public park or reserve within Knox (unless it is a bushland conservation area) as long as they are under effective control. Effective control means that the dog owner must remain within effective voice or hand control distance of the dog at all times.
Dogs must be on a leash on shared use paths to ensure the safety of other path users.
All dogs must be restrained by means of a chain, cord or leash within:
Koomba Park: Dogs allowed on lead.
Nortons Park: Dogs allowed off leash.
Shepherds Bush: Dogs allowed on lead, excluding conservation areas.

Knox Park, Knoxfield
What me? Through there? No way!
We recently visited Knox Park to inspect the Agility equipment that was installed there for public use, according to the council website. The equipment is inside a small fully fenced area at the northern end of Knox Park. The equipment itself is basic (see pics below), and includes square "weaving" poles - not so good for proper weaving! However, this is still a good spot to try training a few new tricks using the props available. Just don't come after lots of rain - we were ankle deep in mud, which in Kiara's case isn't a good setup for training.
