Baw Baw Shire Council will build a new fully fenced off-leash dog park at Dowton Reserve in Yarragon, with works planned to begin in early-mid 2021.
Dowton Park’s existing off-leash area will be fully upgraded within the next year to include different zones to cater for dogs of different sizes and behaviours.
The $177,000 project will be fully funded through the Victorian Government’s Building Works package, which is providing $2.7 billion towards projects across the state.
To make sure the dog park is in line with community expectation, we’re asking all interested community members to have their say on the draft concept designs by Sunday 6 December 2020.
