Eastfield Dog Park

Construction of the Eastfield Dog Park has begun and is expected to be complete around the start of May, subject to weather conditions.

Following a review of our parks and reserves and consultation with the community, Eastfield Park was identified as the appropriate and preferred location for a fenced dog park in Maroondah.

At a meeting on Monday 12 December 2016, Council approved the construction of a fenced dog park in the reserve.

The dog park will be at the front of Eastfield Park, as it:

  • is vacant area that is large and readily accessible
  • has the potential to cater for a fenced dog park facility
  • will integrate well with existing recreational activities and uses in the park.

Things that were considered when planning for the dog park for the site included:

  • the benefits of existing or space for new car parking facilities
  • availability of space for the fenced park itself
  • integration with existing amenities such as children’s playground
  • benefits from good walking trail and footpath access along with active surveillance from those passing the site.
