A FENCED dog park is proposed for Carine Regional Open Space.

The City of Stirling is seeking feedback on the concept design for the facility, which would include a large and small enclosure, drink fountains, a sand pit and seating.

If established, people would still be able to exercise their dogs off leash in the reserve.

Stirling Mayor Mark Irwin said dogs were an important part of many residents’ lives.

“According to our statistics, a majority of people in the City own a dog, so providing a secure space for residents to exercise them in and interact with fellow dog lovers is really important,” he said.

“They also help activate our suburbs and increase passive surveillance, offering a number of health and safety benefits for locals and the community.”

The park is proposed on the sloped grass area between Okely Road and the Big Carine Wetland.

It would join the City’s existing dog parks at Inglewood Oval, Charles Riley Memorial Reserve, Dianella Regional Open Space and Princess Wallington Reserve.
