Most NSW country towns seem to have off lead dog parks now. It is a NSW Local Government Act requirement. Ie I think this is how it goes, if you want to make all footpaths and public places "on lead" by default, then each council must have an Off Leash area for dogs to exercise. So there's one at Bathurst and another at Blayney, and Queyanbeyan and Cowra... etc etc. They vary in equipment - the one at Blaney doesn't have water, it does have a couple of benches and some doggy bags and bins that don't seem to get used, and long grass so you can't see the dog bombs coming. But they try.
