Will our concept design to improve Wishart Reserve dog park get tails wagging?

We’re upgrading the secure dog off-leash area in Hampton East to provide a more enriching exercise and training space for dogs and their walkers.

The draft concept design was developed by a dog agility landscape architect. The design aims to improve the environment and vegetation and create an engaging space for all dogs to play, explore, socialise and even learn some new tricks!

Your feedback helped us paw-fect the concept design to best meet the needs of our community.

Consultation closed 27 February 2023.
