Proposed dog park locations within Macleans Park, Bucklands Beach

We are considering one of two sites within Macleans Park in Bucklands Beach to become a fenced-off dog park.

We will develop the dog park in two stages:

  • Stage one: We will create the off-leash dog park with double gated access.
  • Stage two: We will then add a dog exercise area to the dog park.

Option A:


Pro’s:

Flat, open, and visible area

Easily accessible location

Car parking on Macleans Road can be utilised with a short walk to the suggested area

Already established seating and bin in proximity

Cons:

Limited car parking on Charles Dickens Drive

Possible noise disturbance for the neighbours

In sight of neighbouring properties

Option B:


Pro’s:

Open and visible area

Easily accessible location

Car parking on Macleans Road – easy access for the public

Cons:

In sight of neighbouring properties

May make the park look crowded

Possible noise disturbance for neighbours


Location of options A and B:
