Silloth Green Dog Code

Silloth Green is enjoyed by dog walkers every day of the year and we ask that all dog walkers abide by the dog code, so that Silloth Green is a place for everyone to enjoy.

The purpose of this code is:

  • To ensure considerate use between those undertaking dog walking activities on Silloth Green and other park users
  • To protect the park and its wildlife
  • To ensure access to and use of public open space is preserved for all visitors

Control your dog!

Always ensure your dog is within sight and returns to you when called.

Any dog whose obedience cannot be guaranteed should be kept on a lead.

When there is an event taking place and the Green is busy, keep your dog on the lead or use one of the quieter areas.

Know where you can go!

Dogs are not allowed in the Woodland Play Area, the Water Splash Pad, BMX Track or the fenced Children’s Play Area next to the Splash Pad.

We would prefer that your dog is kept on a lead around the Community Garden, Heritage Rose & Bee Garden & Putting Green.

Consider others!

Never let your pet approach cyclists, other people or dogs uninvited.

Other park users may not be as fond of dogs and some people—especially small children—can find dogs intimidating.

Dogs die in hot cars!

Never leave your dog locked in your car especially during the summer months.  Incidents will be reported to the Police.

Clean up!

Always bag and remove your dog’s waste. Bags of dog waste can be placed in any of the litter bins provided.

Please help us keep Silloth Green clean for everyone!
