Dedicated dog park for Hannaford Reserve

07/10/2020

Following community consultation, the Council endorsed the establishment of a dedicated dog park at Hannaford Reserve in St Peters.

The Council considered a variety of elements including potential locations, infrastructure, amenities, lighting, size, accessibility and parking before commencing consultation to determine the level of support for a dog park at two locations in St Peters: Hannaford Reserve (corner of  Winchester Street and Seventh Avenue) and Otto Park (Second Avenue).

The Council received a total of 128 responses as part of the consultation, 92 of which were in favour of establishing a dedicated dog park within the City.

As Hannaford Reserve has been identified as the preferred location, Otto Park will continue to be an off-leash park at all times, however, the Council will undertake consultation with adjacent residents regarding the installation of lighting at the park.

A concept plan for Hannaford Reserve, including the dog park, will now be prepared as part of the Hannaford Reserve Masterplan and has been included and funded in the 2020–2021 Budget.
