There have been changes to the Dog Access By-laws across Rodney which affects Algies Bay. We take this opportunity to summarize the rules for Algies Bay.
From Labour day weekend to 1st March dogs are prohibited from beach areas between 10:00am and 6:30 pm, outside of these hours, off leash and under control.
From 2nd March to Friday before Labour weekend off leash and under control.
At Snells Beach (southern section) and Algies Bay an additional rule for the parks adjacent to the beaches has been applied to support public safety and comfort concerns.
Owners pick up dog droppings immediately.
Between 6.30pm and 10am, dogs are allowed off-leash in the parks at:
Algies Bay, all parks and reserves adjacent to the beach:
Algies Bay Reserve.

Outside of these hours dogs are to be on-leash.

Dogs are allowed under control on a leash in the following area to protect wildlife Highfield Garden Reserve: in the area fenced for donkeys.
Playgrounds.
Dogs must be on-leash when in the vicinity of any playground.
At all times, dogs are prohibited on all playground surfaces and equipment.
Roads, private ways, and council-controlled car parks and boating areas.
