Gilpin Park, Brunswick - New enclosed dog park

Dog in a park

Enclosed dog park now open

The enclosed dog park was open for business from Tuesday 17 July 2018.

The official opening celebration is on Thursday 13 September 2018 at 4 pm.

Signs will be placed at the entries to the dog enclosure, with clear guidelines so people can understand what is expected of owners and handlers and their dogs when they are at Gilpin Park, particularly inside the fenced area.

Project background

At the November 2017 Council meeting, Council endorsed Gilpin Park, Brunswick as the preferred location for an enclosed dog park.

One of the objectives of Council's Domestic Animal Management Plan (PDF 1Mb) was to investigate the possibility of a dog only agility park. This is an area which is fenced off with a dual access gate entry.

These parks are designed to provide dogs with physical exercise and mental stimulation, help prevent behavioural problems, and allow dog owners to learn to control their dog in a confined area.

The whole of Gilpin Park remains an off leash park and local laws apply.


The program for this project is now:Gilpin Park Dog Park

  • Completion of works 16 July 2018
  • Dog enclosure open from 17 July 2018
  • Official opening celebration Thursday 13 September 2018 at 4 pm.
