Clear and adequate signage detailing when dogs are allowed to run off leash on Melkbosstrand beach will get our tails wagging… The current dearth of information is probably partly to blame for frustration with the way man’s best friend behaves on the beach.

We’ve extracted the essence from the city counsel’s regulations regarding dogs on beaches, on and off leash.

Melkbosstrand from 1st Avenue to 5th Avenue
Dogs on a leash between the hours of 07:00 and 17:00
Dogs free-running between the hours of 17:00 and 07:00

But where is the signage?

But where is the signage?

Melkbosstrand Main Beach from 5th Avenue to Slabbert se Klippe
Melkbosstrand Beach north of Slabbert se Klippe to the Zout River
Dogs free-running at all times

Van Riebeeckstrand to the boundary of Koeberg
Dogs on a leash between the hours of 05:00 and 09:00
Dogs free-running between the hours of 09:00 and 05:00

Melkbos.net’s comments on the above. The information was extracted from a densely written wall of text which made for hard reading. Even harder to understand is why signage conveying the information has not been put up.
