Where should Warrnambool’s enclosed dog park go?

This is the question Warrnambool City Council is looking for residents to help answer.

Council has identified three potential sites: Harris Street Reserve, the old BMX track site on Queens Road and Victoria Park off Koroit Street.

An approximately 4000sqm area has been marked out at each location.

The trial will start on July 20 and will run for three weeks.

Community feedback will then inform Council’s decision on where a permanent enclosed dog park should be located.

Warrnambool Mayor Robert Anderson said that the trial will give dog owners, nearby residents and Council an opportunity to assess each site.

“While Warrnambool already has 25 designated off-lead areas, enclosed dog parks are set aside exclusively for dogs and their owners,” he said.

“They provide a space for dogs to socialise and exercise without the risk of impacting on the enjoyment of other park users.

“Enclosed parks provide owners with more surety around the safety of their dog, especially for younger dogs who may still be in training. 

“They allow owners to practice voice control of their dog in a secure environment.”
