Dog parks and recreation

Dog owners are set to get a big win this financial year, with a new off-the-leash dog park in Devonport receiving the green light.

The new park would be located near the Splash Aquatic Centre, providing a place free from traffic and distractions where owners can take their dogs to exercise, play and maybe even meet some other furry friends. It will feature plenty of seating, shade and water areas. There will even be an agility play ground for the dogs to try out.

This park seems to be the answer a lot of local dog owners have been asking for, with current options for off-the-leash areas being minimal. Now owners can let their four legged friend run and play in safety. The development is set to take place during the 2015-16 financial period, with planning already underway.
