Council said it has had to close Mount Isa's two off-leash dog parks (Edna Medley Park on Sunset Drive, and Norm Smith Park on Transmission Street) to the public until further notice.
The closures follow latest Government COVID-19 restrictions that limit the maximum number of people in an outdoor gathering to two.
Council wishes to remind residents that they can still exercise their dogs on-leash at one of Mount Isa many other parks, and that they should always maintain healthy social distancing.
Signage will shortly be going up at both off-leash dog parks to let people know of the temporary closures.
