Greyhounds Run Free at the Port Elliot Dog Park

The first of six Greyhound off-lead hours was held 13 January 2019 with great success. The event was booked out and all 6 events were booked out in the first few weeks of advertising (max 2 events allowed per dog, max 40 dogs). This shows how popular this concept is.

Alexandrina Council is trialing these greyhound events hoping to determine if they can be run with a low enough risk to convince the Dog and Cat Management Board of SA to allow other Councils to do the same. The greyhound hour idea came from the Friends of the Port Elliot Dog Park.

The Greyhound trial continues monthly until June 2019. Remaining dates are Sundays 14th April, 12th May and 16th June, at 10:00AM until 11:00AM, re-opening for all dogs at 11:15AM.
