The 2023 Pop-up Dog Parks
Parks will be hosting Pop-Up Dog Parks through to September at:
Each location is fully fenced and equipped with benches and dog water bowls. Trees have been included within enclosures to provide shade wherever possible.
The 2022 Pop-up Dog Parks pilot project.
Parks’ second Pop-up Dog Parks pilot season was even more successful than the first. The 2022 program ran from June 1 till September 6 and was expanded from 5 locations to 9: each open for 4 weeks versus 2 weeks in the 2021 program. Water dishes and benches were available and gates were improved.
The feedback we received was largely positive, though there was been some concern regarding loss of space for other park users, and noise and visual impact for some near-by residents. These comments have helped to shape the People, Pets and Parks Strategy.
