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 at all times.
City of Stirling Mayor Mark Irwin said the construction of the dog park was part of a city-wide strategy to create connected communities with more inclusive parks and recreation facilities.
“Feedback from our community indicated that they would like a dedicated space for their dogs to exercise and play at the Carine Regional Open Space,” he said.
“Participation rates of existing dog park facilities at Princess Wallington Reserve in Balga, Inglewood Oval, Dianella Regional Open Space and Charles Riley Reserve in North Beach are very high so there is no doubt that Carine will be as successful”.
