Third Dog Park Coming Soon

Man’s best friend and their owners are in for a treat as construction of a new dog park in Gladstone Park kicks off.

The Woodend-Ashley Community Board approved the Gladstone Park Master Plan back in April 2016, which identified a variety of different works to provide for its growing community.  As well as extra sports fields, a larger playground and a new pathway it also included a dog park, catering for our large and small four-legged friends.

Work to complete the dog park will take between 6-8 weeks and it will be located at the eastern end of the reserve. There will be some heavy machinery in the area and contractors ask that people keep clear while the work is taking place.

The dog park will include a water fountain, bags, bins and a pathway for easy access to dog owners. A new pathway will be installed along the top of the embankment running roughly parallel with Hakatere Road. Pathways from Hakatere Road over to the dog park will also be constructed.
