I am extremely concerned to learn that dogs on leash are now allowed in Weston Park. Dogs will not be able to access the miniature railway or children’s playground area. Weston Park is full of wildlife, kangaroos, swans, ducks, swamp hens and many parrots and other birds. During the week when traffic and people numbers are small the wildlife wander all of the place feeding and relaxing. On weekends the birdlife keep near the waters edge for safety, the roos mostly hide in the trees out of sight. They are very wary of people coming close to take photos.
If dogs are allowed in the park that will make the roos extremely nervous. Not all dogs on leashes are controlled. Roos do not like noise. Dogs on leash seeing the roos would most probably start barking and if other dogs are around then they would join in the barking and the roos would take off in panic. To where I wonder?
What do Rioters think?
