Dog Park Strategy

This engagement is open

Date: Monday, 28 May 2018 to Monday, 25 June 2018

The City is developing a strategy to guide the planning, design, and delivery of fenced dog parks within the municipality.

Fenced dog parks provide a place for dogs to be exercised off-leash; a place for the promotion of responsible dog ownership and etiquette; and they provide an outlet for dog owners to socialise.

The City currently has one fenced dog park, located at Stead Park in Corio.

Have your say on the planning of the City's dog parks. You can get involved by attending a drop-in session or by completing the short Dog Park Strategy survey.

For further information about the Dog Park Strategy, please read the Dog Park Strategy discussion paper attached. The paper provides background information about dogs and highlight the benefits and challenges of dog parks. This paper also acknowledges the community engagement feedback received during the development of the Domestic Animal Management Plan in 2017.
