Matamata dog exercise areas

We would like to remind dog owners that playgrounds are out of bounds for dogs and to exercise dogs on a leash in our parks or off-leash in approved dog exercise areas. In Matamata, the off-leash areas include Furness Reserve, Centennial Drive (from Tainui St to Broadway), Tom Grant Drive (from Rawhiti Ave to Tawari St), and Founders Park.

There are also one or two parks where dogs are not allowed, such as Firth Tower Museum Reserve and Kowhai St Reserve, as well as the central business districts of the three main towns from 8am-6pm (after these hours, dogs are allowed on a leash).
