Plenty of off-leash beach
With regards to a letter from Dianne Garland, (Peninsula News February 21), signs prohibiting dogs on Ettalong Beach have been in place for many years.
About 200 metres from The Box around to Ocean Beach at Umina is about a kilometre of off-leash beach.
It is a larger area than the swimming designated area.
These new signs are just a reinforcement of the existing regulations.
People close to me are afraid of dogs.
My grand-daughter is allergic to dogs.
Why should they have to go elsewhere when the beach area is for family swimming?
Not all dog owners are responsible.
I have been on the beach numerous times when dogs have been let run rampant off-leash, regardless of who is on the beach.
Leave the swimming beach for young families to use in a safe and secure manner.
