Council is committed to providing safe and usable spaces at our local off-leash dog parks. St Clair dog park, located on St Clair Avenue in St Clair, is undergoing an upgrade to the existing park to better cater for residents and local dogs. Council is seeking community input to help us deliver the best result for our dog park users.

The dog park upgrade includes the installation of a new fenced enclosure for larger dogs in addition to upgrading the existing space for small dogs. This upgrade will:

  • Provide separation between large and small dogs.

  • Improve the opportunity for dogs to exercise and socialise without anxiety.

  • Increase seating and shade for dog owners.

What is possible in the upgrades with the available budget?

  • Provision of additional seats with back and armrests.

  • Planting new trees for shade and amenity.

  • Installation of a new bin and tap.

  • Painting the existing fence black to match the new proposed fencing.

  • Bins and dog waste bag fixtures.

  • Additional water.

  • Dog play equipment.

What are the benefits of these upgrades?

  • The new fencing will include an “air lock” style entry to assist with ease of access into the space.

  • Planting new trees will improve shade opportunities, provide cooling and beautification of the park. Trees will be planted in both the large and small dog park enclosures to provide good shade opportunities for hot afternoons.

  • Additional seating with backs and armrests will be provided to the large and small dog enclosures to provide a space for owners to sit and observe their dog(s).

What is not possible in the upgrades?

  • Lighting.

  • Toilets and BBQ facilities.

  • Carparking.

How are the works being funded?

Council adopted the Sport and Recreation Strategy in April 2020. This project was identified in the Strategy and funds are made available through the Sport and Recreation Plan Reserve.

Access to the dog park during the upgrades

During construction, the dog park will be closed with fencing around the site and unavailable for use. Construction time is approximately 8-10 weeks. Visit Dog Off-Leash Areas for more locations to take your dog to.
