About the park

In June 2021, the City of Greater Geelong opened the Belmont Dog Park located in the large open space under the Settlement Road Bridge on Barrabool Road.

The park features two separate areas within the fenced reserve - one for nervous or small dogs and another for active dogs. The park has trails, seating, water fountains with water bowls and a dog training and obstacle area with challenges such as balance beams, hurdles, weave poles, a tunnel and sand area.

    Temporary grass closure

    On Thursday 11 May 2023 we will be erecting temporary fencing around the central grass area within the Belmont Dog Park (refer images below showing area to be fenced). The period of closure will be from May to late October to ensure the grass area is not further damaged during the wetter and cooler months and avoid having to reinstall turf.

    The remainder of the dog park will stay open to the public during this time.

    We are keen to hear your thoughts about the park and some potential alterations to this grass area by taking our online survey below. You can request a hard copy by contacting the officer listed in the 'Who's Listening' section of this page.
