Carine Regional Open Space Fenced Dog Park

The City of Stirling would like to hear your thoughts about a concept plan developed for a fenced dog park at Carine Regional Open Space.

Why is the City proposing this fenced dog park?

The Carine Regional Open Space Fenced Dog Park (Carine fenced dog park) is part of the City’s Fenced Dog Park Implementation Strategy (Strategy), which was approved by Council in March 2017.

The Strategy identified Carine Regional Open Space as a suitable location for a fenced dog park to complement existing dog park facilities located at Inglewood Oval, Charles Riley Memorial Reserve, Dianella Regional Open Space and Princess Wallington Reserve.

Fenced dog parks contribute to positive health and safety outcomes for local communities. The enclosed spaces provide residents with an area where they can take their dogs for exercise and socialisation, which leads to more activated areas and increased passive surveillance.

Installing fenced dog parks will not change the existing use of reserves for owners and their dogs. Dogs may still be exercised off leash on reserves where a fenced dog park is located.

It is important to note that, for the safety of all dogs and park users, dogs must be under control at all times whether on the reserve or within a fenced dog park, in accordance with local laws and the Dog Act.

What is proposed for the fenced dog park?

The Carine fenced dog park is planned to be located on the sloping grass area between Okely Road and the Big Carine Wetland.

The fenced area will include a large and small enclosure and amenities such as dog drink fountains, a sand pit and seating. Car parking will be available in the existing bays on Okely Road.

The concept plan for the Carine fenced dog park and additional information about the Strategy is available in the sections to the right of this page.
