Wellington's Third Fully Fenced Dog Park
Loose Leash Dog Walking Service Newlands Johnsonville Wellington shared Malcolm Sparrow's April 10, 2016
Malcolm's comment "Funding was approved last year for three dog exercise areas over a three year period. The first was Ian Galloway Park (Karori/Wilton) which has now been completed. There has been lots of positive feedback about this one. Next year it will be the turn of part of Sinclair Park in Houghton Bay, then Taylor Park in Tawa the following year. Beyond that, who knows? It would be good to have a further two or three fenced in different parts of the city, but they come at considerable cost. $200,000 has been set aside for the first three!
The closeoff date for letting Council know your views about any dog-related matters is 2nd May 2016

New canine exercise area in Wilton sets tails wagging13 April 2016A new fully fenced dog exercise area at Wilton’s Ian Galloway Park, adjacent to the new BMX track at the corner of Whitehead Road and Curtis Street, is guaranteed to get tails wagging, says Wellington City Council Open Space and Parks Manager, Amber Bill.
Cr. Malcolm Sparrow with Abby, and Mayor Wade-Brown with Storm.
“This is now the largest fenced dog park in Wellington and is already proving to be extremely popular with local dog owners and their dogs,” she says.
The park features a double gate system for safety, a tap and water bowl, a poo-bag dispenser, rubbish bin and night lighting to ensure your dogs and you stay safe at night
Council is also interested in investigating partnerships with local businesses to install dog agility equipment.
Wellington Mayor Celia Wade-Brown says Council approved funding for three fully fenced dog exercise areas in the 2015/16 Annual Plan.
“Ian Galloway Park was the first and potential sites are being investigated to develop one next year and a third in 2018.”
“We have done some consultation around developing Sinclair Park in the south and Taylor Park in the north,” she says. Neither site, which are existing dog exercise areas, are currently fenced.
Council is currently reviewing the Animal Bylaw, Dog Policy and dog exercise areas. Preferred locations of the additional fenced areas could change depending on community feedback. Details of these public consultations can be found on the Wellington City Council website, at local libraries and community centres. Public consultation runs from 1 April – 2 May 2016 so make sure you have your say. Changes will be agreed and in force by September 2016
.Mayor Wade-Brown says that in the meantime, if you haven’t yet visited the new dog park at Ian Galloway Park, pack up your furry friend and head on down for a visit. - WCC

Wellington's first fully fenced dog exercise area should be completed in the next fortnight. Mirimar Vet Allan Probert has organised a $20,000 fundraiser to complete the fencing of Cog Park, near Greta Pt in Evans Bay.
He said it was about time that Wellington Dog Owners had a fully fenced area where they could safely let their dog off the leash. He said dog owners, who pay Wellington City Council $1 million a year in fees, deserved something for their money and he could see a good case for similar exercise areas in other suburbs. The park was partially fenced and he expected work to completely fence it would start within the next week.

= AWESOME !!!
I imagine that people will come to this, Wellingtons First Fully Fenced Dog Park from ALL over Wellington...
as its invaluable for:
small dog safety, for those that are timid, or afraid of large dogs...
retaining puppies in training within the Dog Park,
for teaching Recall to your Dog,
and of course the Biggy... Keeping Your dog OFF the road and out of the Traffic ! ( I'm sure most of us have had a dog that suddenly decides that its a good idea to pop across the road, out of the Dog Park, to visit / meet and greet another dog on the other side ! (painted on ears, all of a sudden ! )
Pass the word and let all your doggy friends and those you meet,
know that Cog Park Dog Park is Open !
See you out there, Penny - Loose Leash Dog Walking
and as Allan Probert says " Enjoy ! "
