Dogs at MSC Reserve

We welcome all dog owners to use the MSC Reserve to take their dogs for a walk or run!

Please take note of the following conditions we have in place to ensure the safety for all dogs, their owners and other users of the reserve.

We have two types of dog areas on the MSC Reserve, "On-Leash" and "Off-Leash" areas. The main park is an "On-Leash" area where dogs must be kept off all marked fields and cleaned up after.

The majority of the MSC reserve is an "Off-Leash" area however all dogs must be under the control of the owner and the owner must carry a leash/es at all times. All dogs must be returned to a leash if horses or stock are present in the area they are walking their dog. All paddocks are allowed to be used, please close any gates you open.

The Eyreton Pony Club and Christchurch Western Riding Association have rules stating dogs must be on a leash in their allocated areas when they are holding their club events. We ask all dog users to avoid these areas when events are being held.

Dogs are not permitted in the MSC playground or in buildings. (exception for guide dogs).

Please take care with your dog/s. If your dog is lively and loves to run, we strongly suggest they remain on a leash along the driveway/track through the centre of the reserve. A doggy bin is available near the main entrance (Mandeville Road) for any waste you may have.
