Park improvements

An enclosed dog park was opened at Gilpin Park in July 2018. This is an area which is fenced off with a dual access gate entry. Signs at the entries provide clear guidelines about what is expected of owners and handlers and their dogs when they are at Gilpin Park, particularly inside the fenced area.

See Gilpin Park enclosed dog park for project details.

Park features

    Walking your dog

      For parks which are off-leash you must still keep your dog under control. 

      In all other public places, dogs must be kept in control with a leash, cord or chain. Dogs are prohibited from the area around playgrounds or within creeks.
