Walks and Trails
The City of Mitcham has a number of popular trails located throughout its open space reserves. Council is developing a formal trail network throughout some of its woodland reserves to facilitate activities such as trail running, walking, bike riding and in some cases horse riding. The trails have been grouped into Zones and are known as the Shared Use Trail network. This designates some trails to be used by all users and other trails to be specifically for walking or bike riding only.
Along with Council managed reserves there are many other parks and reserves in the City of Mitcham managed by State bodies including the Department of Environment Water and Natural Resources (DEWNR) and National Trust. The popular Belair National Park, Shepherds Hill Recreation Park and Brown Hill Creek Recreation Park are three reserves managed by the DEWNR. All three reserves provide a variety of trail experiences for the public.
Dog walking within Council reserves is permitted unless otherwise sign posted. To ensure all users of the parks and reserves feel safe, owners are required to keep their dog under effective control or on a lead (where required) at all times.
