Flag system

Published on 04 January 2024

Red flag at Blackman Park. The flag says

A flag system is now in operation at our local sports fields.

Following a successful trial, flags are displayed at sports fields to help dog owners know when their dogs are allowed on the oval.

  • No flag = allowed off-leash on oval
  • Red flag = not allowed on the oval

This will keep athletes and dogs safe. The flags are used when Council staff and contractors are working on the ovals. For example, when mowing, marking or aerating the lawn.

In addition to Kingsford Smith Oval where this system has been in place since 2020, flags are used at:

  • Blackman Park
  • Burns Bay Reserve
  • Bob Campbell Oval
  • Pottery Green
  • Tantallon Oval
