First dog park for City of Marion

Work is underway to build the City of Marion's first dedicated dog park at Reserve St Reserve, Trott Park.

The 10,000sq m park will cost $226,000 with Council providing $126,000 and the State Government $100,000.

Dogs will be able to run free in a fully enclosed area surrounded by a 1.8m high fence.

The reserve includes a playground, barbecue and kickabout area which is separated from the dog park by the fence.

The dog park is expected to open in July.
