Where would be a suitable location for an off-leash dog park?

Forum is closed.

What locations in Euroa and Nagambie do you think would make a suitable off-leash dog park? 

An off-leash dog area is a designated area where dogs can exercise and play off the leash under the supervision of their owners.

They can be hugely valuable, providing physical and mental health benefits to the community derived through physical exercise, social interaction and pet kinship.

We are taking suggestions until 5pm Thursday, 31 January, 2019 and all feedback will be considered, along with associated requirements, to inform decision making.

There will be a number of other factors that will need to be considered, including environmental, regulatory safety and management, but we will be looking at all options put forward by our community!

The Showgrounds would appear to be a suitable location with plenty of space for thus activity. It would also ensure non dog owners , walkers , runners , our lovely open parks along the creek etc are not impacted by this activity.

It is not necessary. It will cost the council to establish for the very few people who would use it. It will cost the council to maintain it. It will cost the council to keep it free of pests and flies if it is used by anyone. There is literally no demand for this dog walking area. People who wish to walk their dogs in Euroa are perfectly capable of putting them on a lead and walking them on the Apex track (and thanks Apex for all the work you did on this).
If council is prevailed upon by the very few people who think this is a good idea the only place to put it is at the Showgrounds which is a...

There’s a nice big space on the corner of Parker and Turnbull Streets where the BMX track was years ago. Easy access, plenty of room for parking and adjacent to the Apex walking track.

At the moment people take their dogs off the lead on back roads around Euroa including Hillview Road, Creek Drive, Cowells Lane to name a few. They dont cause any trouble to anyone and I count half a dozen on some days. Im not sure that a dedicated off leash park is warranted, particularly a fence park. If someone is letting their dog off a lead that is not under appropriate voice command, then other dogs will be at risk anyway. I am concerned that a fenced park will encourage untrained dogs to be run loose in a public location. People who are walking their dogs around Euroa seem very respons...

Please don't put the dog park in the Lions park on Bury st. There is so much dog poo there already and lots of children use the park

Would the Euroa Showgrounds make a suitable location in Euroa?

There seems to be a lot of unused space near the train station in Nagambie that could be better utilised. It would still be central to town but not on a main road incase a dog did happen to get off the lead and run on to the road.

Showground or area behind old youth club sound good. I’m not supportive of it being around creek/parkland as it is currently a peaceful and scenic area that many users can benefit from (walk, run, dog on lead, no dog). I don’t think a fenced area would fit in with the current appeal/scenery.

At the Memorial Oval , were the "Leo's Park " sign is, it is quite a large area and if the dogs like to swim there is access to the creek.
