A NEW dog park has opened at Sandfield Reserve in Carrum Downs.
The area cost $206,000 to fit out. Frankston councillor Sue Baker said “there are 15,208 dogs registered in Frankston City, but not everyone has a large backyard or suitable places where they can walk them off leash, exercise and enjoy nature as well. What we have created at the Sandfield Reserve Dog Park is an answer to that and it is a place for all ages.”
“There is more than 4,500 square metres of open space – in a designated zone packed with dog-friendly features. There is an agility area, which is what we are calling our playground for dogs! It’s got ramps, hoops, platforms and posts for dogs and owners who like a challenge,” she said. “There’s even a time-out area for dogs who might be over-excited or over-exhausted, with seating for owners to relax as well.”
