Engagement History

19 December, 2017

The City of Hobart is proposing an off-leash dog area at John Turnbull Park in Lenah Valley with development expected to take place across 2017–18.

The City would like to include the following aspects into the design:

· new formalized car parking

· sand digging pit for dogs

· shaded areas

· informal seating

· sensory mulch pit area for dogs

· agility and social area

· new gravel walking path

· new fence line

· water supply

· waste bins and dog bags

· new signage

To find out more view the proposed concept plan, then have your say by completing the feedback form below. You can also come along to our Listening Posts, the first one is 10 to 11:30am on Wednesday the 19th of July. Additional dates and times are listed on the right hand side of this page.

Feedback received during this consultation will be collated and assist in the review of planning to create the final design.


Final plans will be available at an open house meeting for the dog park to be held at Town Hall in the lower ground conference room (access is via the parking deck off Elizabeth Street) on 5 February from 5.30-7pm. Dog park rules will be discussed with some room for community input.
The project will be constructed in the first quarter of 2018. A start date will be communicated once the final plans are available and we know the delivery date of the equipment.

In the meantime here are some of the results from the survey we hosted in 2017.
