The two main off leash dog parks on Bribie Island have been improved by council after requests from locals. Both parks now have better grass coverage and shelters as well as trial equipment for the dogs to play on.
The park at Sylvan Beach near the VMR has been in dire need of proper grass for some time as well as a shelter from sun and rain. Council hit a problem establishing grass in the sandy soil but this has now been overcome due to good summer rains and an irrigation system. A shelter has also recently been erected improving the facility out of sight. A local group of dog lovers have made the park their second home and most days the park is being used throughout the day. Three pm seems to be the main gathering time for this “Muttley” crew.
The other larger dog park at Solander, near the Bowls Club and tennis court, has also been extended with both separated areas now larger. Having two areas for larger and smaller dogs to run separately is of great value and avoids issues between dog owners.
This is a great outcome for the local community, so take your best mate down for a look soon.
