Dog control in Eastwood Park

We have dog control Public Spaces Protection Orders (PSPOs)* in place in Eastwood Park.

They are designed to ensure that people can use and enjoy the park safe from anti-social behaviour caused by irresponsible dog owners. 

There are three orders for different areas of the park: 

  • red area - dogs excluded – this order requires dogs to be kept out of the children's play area
  • yellow area - dogs on leads – this order requires that dogs are kept on a lead in sensitive areas of the park, such as the wildlife garden and tennis courts 
  • blue area - dogs on leads by direction – this order applies across the rest of the park; dog walkers are required to put their dog on a lead when asked to by a council officer, this could happen in instances where a dog is interfering with other people's enjoyment of the park, or when events are being held in the grounds
