Dog Parks

What are you looking for?

Dog parks are a type of park where dogs can play, exercise and socialise off-leash with their owners. They provide an outlet for natural dog behaviours such as running, chasing, playing and barking in a secure environment.

The City of Marion is providing meaningful opportunities to exercise, interact and get out and about with your pets in our parks and reserves.

New dog park

Council has committed to build a new dog park in 2018/2019 and has recently undertaken a survey to seek the community’s view on location, size and key features to be included in the park.

The survey results can be viewed on our Making Marion website
