Glenbrook Park is a popular place for tourists. Do you think that a Dog Off-Leash area in Glenbrook Park, even fully fenced, would encourage or discourage tourists using the Park?

        Think on my OPTION X opposite Glenbrook BOWLING CLUB somewere next to SKATE RAMP, good parking no residence affected by extra noise/ activities etc larger area can be put aside for fencing of a dog off leash area, what do you think of this as an alternate option?? please let me know, pleas what do any one think?
        Hi NO DOGS you are a vocal one arnt you, but beleave it or not I support you in saying I deffinatly do NOT want a dog of leash facility in Glenbrook Park A or B or any were else, I will stand infront of bulldozers bobcats & block construction anyway posible how ever I like to try calmer paths first it makes more sense.

          Option X WOW I think its a great idea, Opposite Glenbrook Bowling Club & next to Skate is PERFECT.
          A large parking area already exist & it is a vast area big enough for an off leash run. I do agree would apear at first glaces that local residence would not be effected but council should ask them for their opinion.
          I would also like to say that I dissagree with dogs of leash areas in all public places.

    This area should be reserved for visitors to the mountains and dogs should remain on the leash.

      100% CORRECT
      visiters to the area use areas A & B
      I live near bye and offen see may children Local & vistor playing in both areas A & B.
      Children are our future not happy dogs and dog lovers
    • The Deacon almost 10 years ago
      AREA A & B should be reserved for not only visitors and it may supprise you but they do walk thru AREA A as well as area B but the CHILDREN both visitor and LOCAL what about their rights and the rights of adjacent houses not to have to put up with yapping all day, dog droppings as well as dog fights.
      LEAVE GLENBROOK ALONE AREAS A & B
    • The Deacon almost 10 years ago
      100% correct
      NO TO GLENBROOK PARK BOTH AREAS A OR B !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • DOG GONE almost 10 years ago
      Glenbrook Park is an ICON and the gateway to the mountains, I feel dog of leash fenced or un fenced in Glenbrook Park would be a total disarster for the Village side of Glenbrook.
      Australia Day Festival & Spring Festival both held in Glenbrook Park would be effected badly taking so much valuable space from the park. A tourist first climps of the mountains should not be of a giant dog walking impound, so I agree to NO DOGS in Glenbrook Park.

      A dog off-leash area is not a good look for visitors entering a World Heritage National Park. In many National Parks in Australia visitors aren't even allowed to have their dogs off-leash in the car park! But BMCC places them in reserves adjacent to the WHNP! BMCC needs an environmental wake-up call.
    • dog and kids almost 10 years ago
      This area should be reserved for the local community - who use it for a shortcut, to ride a bike, jog, for kids to play, have a picnic, meet friends. I don't care what happens to the tourists. Fencing off a well used path is ridiculous. Andn I love dogs and have one. It's not about the dogs either.
  • Plottie almost 10 years ago
    i don't think the area marked "A" would have a very significant effect on tourist activities.

      AREA A is this any were near your house NO it is not however it does effect me and I say NO NO NO to area A

      Nominate your street maybe that is a better location!
    • The Deacon almost 10 years ago
      PLOTTIE
      AREA A NOT significant to you BUT is to a lot of local kids in GLENBROOK who use that AREA A to play games etc.

      I DONT THINK YOUR FRONT YARD IS SIGNIFICANT LETS MAKE THAT A DOG OF LEASH AREA.

      EFFECT TOURIST how dare you not even consider the needs of local youth and were they offen play. YOU obviously dont live near the park you scawn!!

      I think AREA A is a very significant area as GLENBROOK PARK AREA A OR B are part of Glenbrrok Park and apart of the first place tourist vist after their jouney from where ever, I feel it will have a negitive imapact on tourism with a huge part of the park fenced of for the exclusive use of dogs. Area A I sat and watched over the last week at various times and made sure of my following comment I observed children playing and running in Area A also many people walk thru Area A the track is well worn. I KNOW it will both tourist & Locals.
    • DOG GONE almost 10 years ago
      PLOTTIE I am so sorry that you felt my comment was offencive to you I will try to make my point clearer and in less words.
      We differ on our thoughts on AREA A and respectfully I simply would like to state that I THINK Area A is significant.
      I do respect your opinion and do hope you can respect mine as a Glenbrook resident and a person.
    • dog and kids almost 10 years ago
      This is not about the tourists. it's about the local kids palying in the bushy part of the park. I can drive my dog ot an off leash area or just take him for a jolly good walk. Let the kids play where it is safe.
  • favouriteuncle almost 10 years ago
    Probably encourage. Off leash facilities are only suitable for friendly, socialised dogs. In other Council areas dogs are brought up from puppies with regular contact with other dogs and people.
    I can't take my friendly poodle puppy to a market without tourists coming over to pet and cuddle him as they miss their own dog at home..

    • The Deacon almost 10 years ago
      A valid point

      What is t say all dogs are social I witness many dogs in the park at GLENBROOK wanting to go for each others throght
      of a lead POODLE V's PITT BULL who wants or needs to witness that. KEEP THEM ON A LEAD.
      NO TO GLENBROOK A & B AREAS.
  • The Deacon almost 10 years ago
    KEEP DOGS OF LEASH AREA OUT OF GLENBROOK AREAS A OR B !!!!
    U ARE NO WELCOME HERE AT ALL IN ANY WAY SHAPE OR FORM !!!!

    STAY AWAY DONT DESTROY OUR PARK LIKE LUURA'S PARK HAS BEEN!!

    GLENBROOK SAYS NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO WAY !!!!!!!!!!
  • Two Dogs almost 10 years ago
    Glenbrook Park is a lovely Parkf or both tourist and local residence of which I am one & even though I own a dog I strongly disagree with Glenbrook Park being a dog of leash area.
    As a dog owner who lost a little dog in an unprovoked dog attack in a dog of leash area I dont feel that Tourist or Residents would like to witness such an event, and please note this is not an isolated insident I have meet many other dog owners whos dogs have been attacked in such areas and unfortunatly some dog owners appear to take delight in their dogs victory which I feel is both disterbing and sad.
    So I am not sorry to say absolutly no to any dog of leash area in Glenbrook aspecially GLENBROOK PARK and I feeel so stronly about this issue that I notify BMCC now that I will take every legal option open to be to take this though the court system if you decide to go ahead in GLENBROOK PARK. I am a local resident to Glenbrook park.
  • DOG GONE almost 10 years ago
    All I would like to put forward is that I object strongly with this proposal of dog off leash in a fenced or unfenced eviroment, so for me it is simply NO to dogs of leash in Glenbrook Park. It will tear the village apart.
  • Dogs are part of this community almost 10 years ago
    Yet another excellent area for dogs and people to use together. This area again would need fencing. I do not think it would discourage tourists using the park. Most 'normal' people like dogs.

    • dog and kids almost 10 years ago
      I agree that normal people like dogs - but normal people also need to use the path and normal kids need to use the bush. If the council feels the area needs fencing then Glenbrook Park is not a suitable place for this.
  • NOT in GLENBROOK almost 10 years ago
    I say NO to dog of leash any were in Glenbrook park areas A or B deffinatly no, I am a local resident and I do live directly on Glenbook Park,
    I do not hate dogs please do not think that BUT Glenbrook Park is for a great many a destination to picnic & play with their kids etc for others Glenbrook Park is the very first climps of the Blue Mountains. Many people will be effected for the few, I must say as a resident the possibility of living with the permanate stench of dog or even being bitten by dogs such as has happened in LUERA does worry me.
    Enjoy our natural enviroment birds/wildlife while we can dont do this the Glenbrook Park. I have been very lucky to live on this park so far.

      As a resident who objected to a dog off-leash area you will find that your views won't be taken into consideration. I know one resident who photographed 36 cases of dog-owners using Leura Oval out of hours and presented them to council but they were not really taken into consideration at the meeting. Unfortunately not all dog owners obey the rules and this makes it rather unpleasant for local residents. Make sure you get LOTS and LOTS of people to attend as the dog lobby sure will. I wish you luck - the majority of local residents objected to Leura Oval but resident's views were not really listened to. The use of Leura Oval as a dog off-leash area has changed the whole area. For years the wild ducks who nest in the stream near the oval always took their ducklings to the oval - last year they were on the road and a resident took three injured ducklings to Wires. And where have the echidnas, snakes and blue tongue lizards gone that were often seen on the oval? But heck it's just native wildlife - we must keep dogs happy!!!!!
  • dog and kids almost 10 years ago
    I think a dog offleash area would be great in Glenbrook Park . It's convenient for people walking their dogs to the shops and the small size is suitable for small dogs. BUT the idea of fencing off part of the park is ludicrous. That area is constantly criss crossed by cyclists, joggers, dog walkers (with their dogs on leads), school children going to school, sports people going to the bowling club or the oval. We were all thrilled to have the footpath and now you want to get rid of it? There are not many parks with a gorgeous bit of bush for small kids to play in - why make it difficult? I have a dog and kids and the kids need to play and ride bikes on the circuit and my need to take a shortcut through the park outweigh my dog's need for offleash time any day. Dog off leash? Yes. Fences? Absolute rubbish. I'd rather do without the offleash than wreck the park.
  • Thedoctor almost 10 years ago
    Glenbrook park should be primarily for people enjoy. I don't mind sharing it with the occasional well behaved dog on a leash but 'off the leash' no way. Whoever thought that fencing off even a small part of this park for dogs was good idea and would have been accepted by the community must have been out of their mind.

      Not in Glenbrook I agree with you but dont you find it so annoying when a council person can select a location like GLENBROOK PARK effect every local resident in the area and many many more that do care but CANT BE NAMED, you must be more selective with your words, the ones you are looking for are THE RECREATIONAL DEVELOPMENT OFFICER @ BMCC, see no personal names.
      O and I would think that there are NO dog of leash areas near his house. Be Good!
  • The Deacon almost 10 years ago
    Please send emails faxes letters to Nathan Summers BMCC master mind of dogs of leash areas in GLENBROOK PARK all corrispondence must be lodged by THIS FRIDAY 10th SEPTEMBER. Apart from this send your letters of objection to every councilor you can asap a high profile is needed NOW or the BMCC will damage Glenbrook Park perminatly. PLEASE send letters to the editor @ Gazette
    I will place an advert in Gazzette closer to the date and invite every one who want to save Glenbrook Park to join me at the council meeting as one united voice that will be heard. Work hard to raise the profile on this issue
    BYE THE WAY I DO NOT HATE DOGS I EVEN OWN ONE! I LOVE MY DOG I JUST DONT OWN MY DOG.
