Park improvements

In 2016, a new nature play space was created to encourage children to interact with water and nature, featuring a hand water pump at the top of a playful mound, a bird-hide play structure, timber tee pee, and more traditional play equipment. See Kirkdale Park - New nature play space for project details.

Park features

    Walking your dog

      At off-leash dog parks you must still keep your dog under control. You can find out more about these rules on our Park amenities and equipment page.

      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.
