New Sign Update: City Code

Thanks to Erica for finding the link to the City Code. (Click on Animal Regulation.)  Here is the code to which the scandalous new Dog Park sign refers:


     (A)     Except as provided in Section 3-4-4 (Public Areas Where Restraint of a Dog is Not Required), an owner or handler of a dog shall keep the dog under restraint.

     (B)     A person holding a dog on a leash or lead shall keep the dog under control at all times.

Here is 3-4-4, essentially a list of all the legal off-leash spots in the city:


     An owner or handler may allow a dog to be without restraint as otherwise required by this title in the following places:

     (1)     Auditorium Shores from South First Street west to Bouldin Creek;

     (2)     the portion of Zilker Park bounded by Stratford Drive, Barton Springs Road, and Park River Road;

     (3) the right-of-way of Far West Boulevard between Great Northern Boulevard and Shoal Creek Boulevard;

     (4)     the portion of Robert Mueller Municipal Airport land bounded by Old Manor Road, Manor Road, the airport fence, and Lovell Drive;

     (5)     Red Bud Isle east of Red Bud Trail;

     (6)     the portion of Onion Creek District Park south of Chunn Road;

     (7)     the portion of Northeast District Park bounded by Lake Long Road, Crystal Brook Drive, and the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad right-of-way;

     (8)     the portion of Walnut Creek District Park bounded by Cedar Bend Drive, Walnut Creek, and the park fence on the west and east sides;

     (9)     the portion of Lake Austin Metropolitan Park bounded by Park Drive, the park fence on west side, Turkey Creek, and top ridge of bluff line that overlooks Lake Austin;

     (10)     Shoal Creek Hike and Bike Trail from 24th Street to 29th Street; and

     (11)     in an area designated by the Director of the Parks and Recreation Department.
