New Dog Park

HELP US PLAN FOR A NEW DOG PARK

Council currently has an official dog park at Reserve Street Reserve, Trott Park as well as a range of dog off leash exercise areas including Hazelmere Reserve at Glengowrie.

Council proposed to develop two new dog parks in response to community feedback.

Reserve Street Reserve Dog Park in Trott Park is Council’s first official dog park and was opened in September 2016.

Council has committed funding to build a new dog park in 2018/2019.

We are mindful that a dog park can be a popular destination, which may impact surrounding residents due to increased traffic, increased noise and visual impacts. We are looking for a location that caters to these issues.

The Dog & Cat Management Board SA guidelines for a successful dog park suggest the following considerations:

  • Be an adequate size reserve
  • Be easily accessible by road
  • Have space or potential for off street parking
  • Have connections to existing pedestrian paths and trails
  • Be within walking distance of residential areas
  • Have good surveillance from public areas (not an isolated site)

How can you get involved?

There are a number of ways for you to share your view:

  • Survey - help us plan for the park by completing a short survey
  • Location ideas - pin drop your suggested location.
  • Forum - use this space to share your location ideas

The community consultation has now been closed. Thank you for your feedback and we will provide a summary of the results on our Making Marion website in the near future.
