Why the hell is there a bike path going through an off-leash area? That's the approach that you should be taking - asking the council about this.
That is actually disturbingly common along some shared paths in Melbourne. But there is a rider to it in the council rules - despite it being an off-lead park, leads are required anywhere within 5m of a shared path.
So this dog-walker is acting in contravention of rules, period.
