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.

Council consulted with the community on the new off-leash dog area in November 2021. Thank you to all who provided feedback.

Key issues raised were:

  • Parking in Torquay Close
  • Creating a separate fenced area for small dogs

Your input helped shape the final version of the concept plan, which addresses these concerns.

The plan was approved at Kingston's 20 December 2021 Council Meeting.

The final plan can be found in the Documents library on the right-hand side of this page.

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.
