Who let the dogs out?!

Off-leash area coming soon to Orleigh Park

Off-leash area coming soon to Orleigh Park

As our population ages and downsizes more and more, apartment buyers are asking the question… “can I keep my dog if I want to live  there?”

The great news for pet owners is that the answer is ‘yes’ in a lot of cases now. You will need to apply to each Body Corporate for approval but you can keep a small pet at Koko, the new Riverpoint as well as many others.

Council have recognised this will mean a growing pet population in the area and, in line with the RSPCA’s  push for legislation requiring pet owners to walk their dogs daily, a new enclosed “off-leash” area is to be added to West End’s Orleigh Park on the Brisbane River.
