A new fenced off-leash dog park for Chadwick Reserve

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Council has received a number of community requests for a fenced off-leash dog area at Chadwick Reserve.

As part of Council’s redevelopment of Chadwick Reserve, the existing off-leash dog area will be transformed into a 3000 square metre enclosed dog park (please see concept plan and images in the Documents library to the right), featuring:

  • new granitic sand and grass areas
  • dog agility equipment
  • dog litter bag dispensers
  • shelter, seating, bins and drinking fountains
  • new trees and shrubs.

The project will also provide new concrete paths to connect to the shared use path along the Mordialloc Bypass to the main oval and to the surrounding streets, Albert Place and Torquay Close.

In accordance with Council’s Urban Cooling Strategy (2020), this project will also include the planting of over 300 new trees in the areas immediately surrounding the off-leash dog park.

This is a fantastic idea. So many locals walk their dogs here and having a designated dog area that is fenced would allow more people more enjoyment of the area. It would also ensure the safety of our beloved pets and all other users of different areas of the park.

I would love this to happen as I walk to Chadwick everyday for the last 4 years. I have never my dog off lead as I’m worried she will make her way to the road. I have been to other fenced dog parks but what I have noticed as my dog is a small dog there are places she can get out from under the fence. My only suggestion would be please make sure the fence is close enough to the ground so small dogs can’t get under.

This is a fantastic idea! Such a large area is ideal. Although please ensure drainage issues are fixed or this area could turn into a mud pit in winter.

I would love the fenced, off leash dog park to go ahead. It will be fantastic for our local community, it will be inclusive too, as many of us don't have kids, or the kids have left the nest. Its great there is kids play areas, so being included in that general area would make us dog people feel part of the community.
The other local, fenced,off leash park,Spring road, is disappointing, fenced area is tiny, the rest is boring, barren and windy!
Will be great to watch local sport, see local people and have a lovely place to get some fresh air with the pooch.

I live in Torquay Close and am on the committees for DVCA and Chadwick reserve. My concern is parking for the dog park, we already have many cars parking in our street and in Village Drive. I realise that we need to get the off leash dogs off the reserve but where will the cars park ? When we have cricket or football happening the existing car parks will be full.
