S5.6 currently reads, 'No person shall cause or allow any dog belonging to them or otherwise under their control, within a Country Park or other facility, to enter any building, shelter, children's playground, nursery, competition area or arena, ornamental or other water or any place from which the Executive Director by Notice conspicuously displayed has specifically excluded dogs. Dogs are not permitted within the Children's Farm or livestock fields within Palacerigg Country Park, Cumbernauld, G67 3HU.'
