Enhancing our parks for people and dogs off leash
Consultation on how Council can enhance Hannaford Park as an off-leash area has finished. A report with feedback from the community will be presented to Council.
The City of Mitcham is committed to enhancing off-leash parks in the Council area and the Dog and Cat Management Plan 2018-2023 identifies a number of off-leash parks for possible enhancement over the next five years.
The Dog and Cat Management Plan 2018-2023 provides the framework for Council’s management of dogs and cats with a focus on improving the animal management services provided.
Off-leash parks come in various shapes and sizes. In the City of Mitcham, off-leash parks range from single use sites such as CC Hood Fenced Dog Park to multi-use off-leash parks that are shared with other activities including sporting ovals, recreational trails and children’s playgrounds.
Please note this enhancement project does not refer to the development of new fenced dog parks or an upgrade of the existing CC Hood Dog Park.
The first park for off-leash enhancement is Hannaford Park, Belair.
