Richards Reserve, Coburg North - New enclosed dog park


A new dog park in Coburg

Richards Reserve in Coburg North is getting an enclosed dog park. This follows community consultation in 2017 and the recent successful creation of Moreland’s first dog park at Gilpin Park in Brunswick.

In November 2017, Moreland Council endorsed Richards Reserve in Coburg North as the preferred location for an enclosed dog park.

A draft concept plan has been prepared that shows the proposed area of approximately 3,000 square metres of nature play space for dogs, surrounded by a 1.35 metre high fence.

Richards Reserve will remain an off leash park and local laws apply.
