Enclosed Dog Park

Last year, our community had their say on the site for the proposed dog park.

We are now inviting our community to view and provide feedback on the proposed design of the enclosed dog park to be constructed at the Leslie Street Reserve (Reserve 40075) located on the corner Waterside Drive and Leslie Street, Dudley Park.

The proposed design has been developed with community members who have a strong interest in the development of a local dog park including professional dog handlers and representatives from the Waterside Residents Association.

With nearly 15,000 dogs registered in the City of Mandurah, responsible dog ownership is so important for our community.

An enclosed park will help to contribute to happier, healthier, better socialised dogs, and create a community space for dog owners to socialise.

Did you know that responsible dog off-lead exercise is already allowed within designated areas including over 17kms of coastline and 26 reserves throughout Mandurah?

In addition to these off-lead areas, the enclosed dog park will provide an alternative environment to cater for dogs of all sizes and their owners, where dogs can play off lead with owner supervision.

Enclosed dog parks are particularly beneficial for those who may find it difficult to exercise their dog by walking extended distances.

The proposed enclosed dog park design provides for a separation into two areas being a Dog Play ‘small dog’ area and a Dog Exercise ‘all dog’ area. Most enclosed dog parks provide guidance on the use of the separate areas but it is important to note the behaviour of the dogs should guide the selection of the areas not just the dogs size.

These areas are to be separated by a visually impermeable fence constructed of Colorbond® or other low maintenance visually impermeable fencing. This separation is to prevent potential aggression between smaller and larger dogs.

The size of the Dog Play (small dog) area is proposed to be 2100sqm (Area 1 to the north, closer to Leslie Street. The size of the Dog Exercise area (All Dog) is proposed to be 2500sqm. The Dog Exercise area provides for a run of 90 metres allowing opportunity for exercise.

Please view the proposed design.
