The City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters is seeking your comments on a proposal to establish a dedicated dog park in Otto Park and in a portion of Hannaford Reserve, St Peters.

 

Background

The Council’s 2019-2024 Dog and Cat Management Plan includes an objective to investigate the establishment of a dedicated dog park in the City.

Dog parks are dedicated areas where dog owners can exercise their dogs. Dog parks are usually fenced and may include facilities such as dog agility / play equipment, varied ground surfaces and landscaping (e.g. turf, mulch, sand and mounds), double gates, shelters and seating.

The City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters currently has 10 off-leash areas, where residents and visitors can exercise their dogs off-leash, alongside other users of the reserve.

 

Proposed dog park locations

Following consideration of various options, the Council is proposing to change Otto Park and a portion of Hannaford Reserve to be dedicated exclusively for use as dog parks.

If the Council proceeds with the establishment of a dedicated dog park in both locations, it is proposed that Otto Reserve would remain as a fenced grassed area for dog exercise.

Given the large size of Hannaford Reserve, including the recent purchase of adjacent land to be incorporated into the reserve, it is proposed that Hannaford Reserve would be redeveloped to include a section that is designated as a dog park, alongside an open space and playground area.

You can view the location of both reserves on the map below.
