    The City of Stirling’s fenced dog park at Carine Regional Open Space is now open.

    The dog park, which is located near the Okely Road car park, provides a secure setting for dogs and their owners to socialise in a purpose built enclosure.

    The facility includes amenities such as dog (and human) drink fountains, a sand pit, outdoor seating and dog agility equipment providing residents with additional options to exercise and socialise with their dogs.

    Dogs may still be exercised off leash on the reserve, both inside and outside of the fenced dog park, but must be under effective control...

    Dogs may still be exercised off leash on the reserve, both inside and outside of the fenced dog park, but must be under effective control at all times.

    The construction of the dog park was part of a city-wide strategy to create connected communities with more inclusive parks and recreation facilities.

    It is expected that Carine dog park will have participation rates as high as those at existing dog park facilities within the City.

    What did we hear?

    One of the frequent comments received during the consultation period related to the potential impact on the Sunday morning Park Run.

    While the previous concept was prepared in consideration of the Park Run route, following discussions with Park Run Carine the extent of fencing at the north-eastern corner of the fenced dog park has been reduced. This has been done to enable Park Run participants to congregate in the shade of the existing trees in this area on completion of their run.

    Another subject of frequent feedback related to concerns that many dogs visiting Carine Regional Open Space were not under effective control. This feedback has been provided to the City’s Rangers who, as a separate program to the installation of the fenced dog park, will implement an education campaign reminding dog owners of their responsibilities under local laws and the Dog Act.

    If dogs are not being controlled effectively residents should report this behaviour to the City's Rangers.

    What’s Next?

    In accordance with the Council approved strategy for the implementation of fenced dog parks this project will now continue to construction phase with works on site currently scheduled to be completed in February to June 2019.

    Temporary signs will be erected on site to advise the public of construction timeframes prior to construction commencement and updates will be communicated on this page.
