North Adelaide Dog Park


Lighting works at the The North Adelaide Small Dog Park have been completed and the park has been reopened.

Council is now proceeding with phase 3 of improvements to North Adelaide Dog Park. Phase 3 will see lighting installed in the Small Dog Park and work to pathways conducted between 3 April and 12 May 2017. During construction the Small Dog Park will be closed. Dogs will still be able to use the All Dog Park while the work is in progress.

Background

On 29 January 2012, the North Adelaide Dog Park (NADP) in Ngapa Yarta (Park 5) opened at a cost of $370,000. Since opening, the NADP has been well received and used by local residents and visitors who travel from 59 suburbs across Metropolitan Adelaide to visit the park. (Study conducted by the University of South Australia (UniSA).

The study reviewed user behaviour, community satisfaction and gathered information on suggested park improvements. The top five desired improvements are:

  1. Lights
  2. Maintenance/Park Improvements
  3. Toilets
  4. Equipment
  5. Shade.

In September 2014 Council approved funds of $97.5k to implement design improvements and overcome maintenance issues in North Adelaide Dog Park.

In February 2016 Council approved additional funding for phase 2 of the project to install lighting in the All Dog Park and along the Lefevre Road entrance pathway. This project was a result of the feedback you provided, with lighting the number one desired improvement. The provision of lighting for public safety of users will further support community use of the North Adelaide Dog Park specifically after daylight hour usage.

For current information regarding specific closure times, read through the Consultation Pack in the Current Information section on the right-hand side of this page and browse the FAQs section for commonly asked questions about this project and who to contact for more information.

    Background

    In February 2016 Council approved additional funding for phase 2 of the project to install lighting in the All Dog Park and along the Lefevre Road entrance pathway.

    We would like to notify users of the North Adelaide Dog Park about planned improvements to take place from the end of June 2016 through to 22 July 2016.

    This project is a result of the feedback you provided, with lighting the number one desired improvement. The provision of lighting for public safety of users will further support community use of the North Adelaide Dog Park specifically after daylight hour usage.

    Access to the Dog Park will be limited whilst work is carried out. However, Council aims to ensure one of the parks remains open throughout as an all dog park. Signage informing the community of varying opening times will be placed on all gateway entrances.
