Have your say on improvements to our dog parks

Kids with a dog

Dog owners are being engaged to discuss what minor improvements could be made to enhance safety and comfort at Canberra’s dog parks.

Canberra’s six dog parks, located in Belconnen, Tuggeranong, Yarralumla, Forde, Casey and O’Connor, will share in upgrade funding to maintain and improve the off-lead experience.

Issues like park access, car parking, seating, shade and water are all open for feedback.

Face-to-face feedback opportunities will take place at all six of Canberra’s dog parks this weekend, at the times listed here:

Saturday 8 April 2017

  • Greenway, Lake Tuggeranong, Mortimer Lewis Drive from 9am to 10.30am.
  • Yarralumla, park land near Weston Park from 11.30am to 1pm.
  • O’Connor, park land on Fairfax Street from 2pm to 3.30pm.
