Community to decide next dog park location.

Lambton Park and Armstrong Park are possible locations for a second dedicated, fenced, off-leash dog area.

Lambton resident Mark Brooker with dog Wesley, Newcastle Deputy Lord Mayor Cr Declan Clausen with dog Toby, and Lambton Residents Group member Mary Webster with dogs Jem and Scout at Lambton Park.

Community feedback received on the Dogs in Open Space Plan showed high demand around the suburb. Council found a need for additional fenced dog parks across the city, including Islington, Adamstown, and Maryland.

Deputy Lord Mayor, Councillor Declan Clausen said City of Newcastle was committed to providing open spaces for residents’ 45 thousand dogs to safely run free.

A Council survey found 60% of people want more fenced, off-leash dog areas in Newcastle [with] desired features such as shade, seating, signage and designated areas for small and large dogs,” Cr Clausen said. 

This is reflected in the overwhelming success and popularity of the City’s first fenced, off-leash dog park at Acacia Avenue, North Lambton.

Community views are welcome to help select the location of our next fenced off-leash dog area and can be made via newcastle.nsw.gov.au/YourSay until 5pm Thursday 6 August 2020.
