Dog walking

June - October

Haig Park Experiments is designating an unfenced dog-friendly area that will be signposted with water fountains, dog bowls, bags and bins. Playful, small scale dog agility equipment will be provided at regular monthly "Haig Park Paw Party" events.

Place plan theme: Health + Fitness
'To meet the recreational needs of the local community.'

Dates:
June - October
29 June - Haig Park Paw Party, 9:00am-12:00pm
28 July - Haig Park Paw Party, 12:00pm-2:00pm
*Event details below

Observation:
Haig Park is an off-leash dog area and there are many current park users who walk their dogs, but limited amenity creates issues with waste. There are also limited amenities for dogs and their owners.

Hypothesis:
Better amenity for dog walkers can encourage more responsible owner behaviour regarding waste and improve the user experience for both.

Favourable outcomes

Improved amenity for dog walkers, improved user experience for all park users, improved public perception as a dog-friendly destination.
