We are looking at

The ACT Government is building a new fenced dog park in the Lanyon Valley to provide more spaces for dog owners in south Tuggeranong to exercise and socialise their dogs off-leash.

The new Lanyon dog park will be located on the corner of Jim Pike Avenue and Woodcock Drive in Gordon.

Fenced dog exercise areas contribute to the effective management of dogs in public spaces by providing controlled space where dogs can freely exercise and play. They also assist in alleviating the pressure on shared recreational areas.

A draft concept plan has been developed for the new Lanyon dog park to show what is possible at the site.

The community is invited to provide feedback on the concept plan which outlines the proposed mix and location of facilities at the new Lanyon dog including parking, access gates, paths, trees, water stations and waste bins as well as recreational infrastructure such as shade structures and seating.

We will use your views to

Community feedback will inform the final design of the future Lanyon dog park. Construction of the new dog park is expected to commence in 2023.
