Proposed Dog Park at Frank Mitchell Park/Woodville West Reserve

Consultation Results

Community consultation was undertaken in August and September 2019 on a proposed new dog park at Semaphore Park Reserve, located on the corner of Military Road and Edwin Street, Semaphore Park.

A total of 138 responses to the consultation were received, with 117 responses (85% of total responses) indicating support for the proposal. The consultation results, together with a draft concept plan were presented to the Asset Management Committee on 18 November 2019 (Item 3.113) view here where draft concept plans were endorsed for further community consultation.

Consultation for Draft Concept Plans

We are now seeking your feedback on the draft concept plan which you can view here or in the Document Library. Your feedback will assist Council to finalise the concept plan and Council’s consideration of funding in its 2020/21 budget. Key features of draft concept plans are as follows:

  • A fully fenced area, approximately 570m2 in size;
  • Access gates on the northern side of the dog park, connected to existing paths (existing vehicle access gates are not required and will be decommissioned);
  • A single area for small dogs and puppies; and
  • Paths, signage, shelters, seating, a water fountain, lighting, bins, compostable dog bags.

The proposed new dog park is intended for use by small dogs (14 kilograms and under) and puppies only. Puppies under the age of 6 months will not be permitted and signage will be erected to clearly explain these restrictions.

An on-site information session will also be held at Frank Mitchell Park/Woodville West Reserve, on Wednesday 5 February 2020, from 5.00pm – 6.00pm, where you can provide feedback and discuss the concept plans with council staff.
