Published on 06 September 2018

Following on from the success of the trial dog off-leash area at Rio Vista Park, Mildura Rural City Council is embarking on a plan to establish permanent off-leash facilities for Sunraysia dog owners.

To ensure these facilities meet the needs of the community, we are asking residents to participate in two surveys.

The first survey will help Council develop a Mildura Dog Off-Leash Policy, which will more broadly guide off-leash services in the region. The second survey is to seek formal feedback on the Rio Vista Park trial facility.


Both surveys are available:

  • Online by clicking the links below

  • In hard copy at Council Service Centres
  • By contacting Rebecca Toth on (03) 5018 8100.


 Written submissions on these matters are also welcome and can be sent to:


Surveys and submissions must be received by Wednesday, 3 October 2018.
