The new Warrnambool Community Dog Park is now open to dogs and their owners.

The enclosed dog exercise area in Victoria Park (opposite the showgrounds) encourages owners and their dogs to get out and get active in a sociable and safe environment.

The dog park is fully fenced, with a double gate system for entering and exiting the enclosure.

It also features a FOGO bin and compostable bags for dog poo. 

The total project costs were $47,000 and included provision of a drinking fountain, dog bowl and tap. 

Mayor Cr Tony Herbert said the new dog park had come about with the support and involvement of the community.

“I’d really like to thank the community working group for their help in guiding the project,” Cr Herbert said.

“This is very much a community facility with scope to be further developed with exercise equipment, seating and other improvements. 

“We’d like the community to stay involved in the park’s ongoing development.

“It also puts Warrnambool on the map as a destination with a dedicated area for dogs, which is increasingly important for many visitors who are travelling with their pets.”

The dog park entrance includes a sign which sets out the rules to ensure that dogs and their owners are able to happily share the space.
