Caulfield Wedge dog off-leash area

We asked

In 2017, Council was appointed to manage an area in Caulfield known as ‘the Wedge’. We asked if you would like to see this space converted into Glen Eira’s first exclusive, fully fenced dog park, featuring a range of areas and activities for different types and personalities of dog. A dedicated dog park has been requested by the community for several years. However, finding a suitable location presented a challenge.

You said

The engagement period was held from October to December 2017. Informational flyers were delivered to 150 surrounding properties, on-site signage was erected and a total of 675 people visited the Have Your Say online forum. There were a total of 29 submissions. Overall, the submissions indicated support and excitement for the proposal, with the majority of people commending the initiative. A number of alternative suggestions, such as bike tracks, sports facilities and community buildings could not be achieved due to site constraints.

We did

Council approved plans for the Caulfield Wedge Dog Park in 2017. Construction commenced in February 2019 and has now been completed. Head on down to ‘Pawfield Park’ to give your dog the time of its life!
