Mayor Tracey Roberts said Council had approved the concept of a dog park on the corner of Hartman and Sport Drive following feedback from the community.

“The City of Wanneroo is home to more than 350 parks, and dogs are permitted on all of them except for the Wanneroo Showgrounds and Fred Stubbs Park,” Mayor Roberts said.

“However Council recognises that it is not always appropriate for dogs to be exercised in parks that are regularly used by children and sporting clubs.

“By providing a dedicated dog exercise area, our City’s furry friends will have a space specifically designed for them.”

Mayor Roberts said the current construction works included perimeter fencing and seating.

“Subject to future funding approval, the City plans to include other elements including agility equipment, a sand play area, a dog-friendly drink fountain, and an exercise area specifically designed for small dogs.”
