Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Consultation has concluded.

Council is seeking feedback from the local community regarding the installation of a small dog off-leash area at Sylvia Gibbs Park, Nyora Street, Everton Hills. The proposed project will aim to retrofit the small dog off-leash area to within the fenceline of the existing dog off-leash area.

Listed below are four (4) options available for the proposed project.

Option 1: Do Nothing

  • No small dog off-leash area or additional infrastructure to be installed.


Option 2: Southern End

  • New fenceline to provide a small dog off-leash area that will include the existing park shelter on the southern side of the park. This option will ensure that the dog agility equipment will remain available to those using the existing dog off-leash area. This option will additionally include the installation of a new park shelter and seating to the existing dog off-leash area


Option 3: Western End

  • New fenceline to provide a small dog off-leash area that will include the existing park shelter on the southern side of the park as well as the existing dog agility equipment. This option will additionally include the installation of a new park shelter and seating to the existing dog off-leash area.


Option 4: Eastern End

  • New fenceline to provide a small dog off-leash area at the Eastern end of the existing dog off-leash area. This option will include a new shelter, seating, bubbler and pathway connection.

The project is currently in the planning phase, with construction proposed to be undertaken in the 2021/22 financial year, should there be a clear outcome from community consultation.
