Dogs play a very important role in the lives of many people and Council has recognised the importance of giving dog owners places to exercise their pets off-leash in a controlled manner.

The City has heard the community say they would like to see more fenced dog parks in our region and has committed to creating three more over the next year.

The dog park in Belmont is proposed for the large open space reserve under the Settlement Road Bridge on Barrabool Road.

The site was chosen and the plans developed in accordance with the 'Fenced Dog Park - Siting , Design and Management Guidelines' which are unique to Geelong (to view see the Document Library section).

This engagement closes 8th June 2020
