The City of Mandurah have asked residents for their thoughts as to where to build an enclosed dog park.
There are almost 15,000 registered dogs in the City of Mandurah, highlighting the importance of responsible dog ownership.
The city said an enclosed dog park will help to contribute to happier, healthier, better socialised dogs and create a community space for dog owners to socialise.
Responsible off-lead areas for dogs already exist within designated spaces around Mandurah however enclosed dog parks are particularly beneficial for those who may find it difficult to exercise their dog by walking extended distances.
Eight potential sites have been identified:
- Acheron Road, San Remo
- 34-38 Karinga Road, San Remo
- Leslie Street, Dudley Park
- Melaleuca Terrace, Halls Head
- Mary Street, Halls Head
- Fairbridge Road, Halls Head
- Steerforth Avenue, Coodanup
- Cambridge Drive, Greenfields
Design elements including park layout, activity zones, circulation paths, fencing, entry points, surface materials, plants, amenities and maintenance management will be developed once the site has been selected.

The public consultation period closes on Thursday, May 9. The findings will then be presented to Council with costings to be considered as part of future budgets.
