Residents of St Lucia draw to the attention of Council the problem of Macquarie Street, Sir William McGregor Drive, Guyatt Park and the park on Munro Street being used as a dog off-leash area. This is very dangerous and a day does not go by that I don't get accosted by a dog running/playing with its owner, especially near the river. There are adequate dog off-leash facilities in Perrin Park. Many guide dogs live/use the area and it is dangerous. 

Your petitioners therefore request that the Brisbane City Council erect large signs warning of the financial penalties of dogs being off-leash in these parks/areas to curb the inconsiderate behaviour. I love dogs and am happy for them to be off-leash in the appropriate area, being a dog off-leash park, not harassing me as I walk along the street with my dog!
