Kimberley Reserve, Chirnside Park, is a multi-purpose sports reserve with two ovals, open space, a dog agility area, playground and walking trails.

In June 2023, gates were added to the fenced area to trial enclosing the dog agility space.

We would now like to hear from the community as to how this has been received – the positives, the negatives and everything in between, from both dog owners and non-dog owners alike.

This feedback will help inform Council’s People and Dogs in Parks Plan, currently being developed, to guide decision making for future provision of dog off-leash areas across the municipality.

How to be involved

Tell us what you have observed since the dog park was gated and fully enclosed. How has it worked (or not) for dogs, their owners and what has been the impact on other users and activities at Kimberley Reserve.

The team will be out and about while the consultation is open.
