Monash Council wants to know if you care about off leash areas at Gardiners?
Monash Council are reviewing their policies regarding animal control and we need your help.
Currently our main grass pitch [P1] at Gardiners Creek (right outside the pavilion) is an off leash dog area. Every week we have to clean up after the dogs before anyone can play or train, and this is a health hazard. There are also patches of dead grass, worn patches and unfortunately 'off leash' sometimes equates to uncontrolled.

While we understand the need for off leash areas and know that Monash does provide many spaces for this purpose, it is imperative to our agreement with Football Victoria that our main pitch is maintained to an acceptable standard for the level of competition we have achieved.
Please click here and convey your concerns regarding the use of our main pitch as an off leash area, for safety reasons and in the best interests of preserving the ground to a professional standard. Closing date for feedback is 29th September.
