Last night Council adopted the concept design and indicative financial costs for a Dog Exercise Area on Larsen Road, corner of Sansimeon Boulevard, Byford.

We developed the concepts in consultation with the community. The consultation process included an online survey that was open from 28 September 2018 to 9 October 2018. The survey received 57 responses. Community members also worked on the designs with us at a workshop held on Saturday 6 October 2018. At the workshop, we incorporated suggestions into the design live on a large screen. Additionally, we asked attendees their preferences on a number of sample materials.

Stage one

Stage one is a high-quality dog exercise area that caters for both small and large dogs. The large dog area is 2625m², and the small dog area is 875m².

  • Lawn, natural ground area and sandpits
  • Bins and doggy bag stations
  • Agility equipment
  • Water fountain
  • Footpath
