A decision on Bibra Lake has been deferred, pending an environmental report into the suggested locations.

This topic was discussed at Council's Ordinary meeting on 12 October 2017. Read the agenda item 18.1, including the community feedback.

We asked:

We're on the lookout for suitable locations to provide fenced dog parks. We asked you to suggest locations and comment on some locations proposed by the City in Atwell, Aubin Grove, Bibra Lake or South Lake.

Background

The City has two fenced dog parks at Yarra Vista and Jan Hammond Park. In October 2016, a citywide survey found strong support for more off-lead exercise areas. Based on feedback, Council will fence a dog-exercise area at Milgun Reserve this year, and in the future, Costa Park.

Guidelines

Ideally, land should meet these guidelines:

  • Land of 1.5ha or more
  • Water source for water fountains
  • Parking or capacity for parking spaces
  • Provision for dog poo bag station and general waste bins
  • Preferably away from sports areas and schools so there is no clash of use

Our suggestions

We are suggesting:

  • Atwell, Brenchley Park (opposite Atwell oval)
  • Aubin Grove, Durango Park (where the City could fence the boundary of the park)
  • Bibra Lake eastern side (south of the skate park and opposite the retirement village)
  • South Lake, unnamed reserve (under the powerlines, south of Briggs Road)

Note: Based on previous consultation, Council decided not to proceed with any dog exercise areas at Princeton Park, Aubin Grove.
