Tails wag­ging at new dog park

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Lathlain -

MA­SON the cocker spaniel has given the paws-up to a new dog ex­er­cise park in Lath­lain.

A reg­u­lar vis­i­tor to the park, the lo­cal ca­nine, who is a nat­u­ral in front of the cam­era, last week demon­strated why it has be­come so popular with pooches and their own­ers.

The park, tem­po­rar­ily lo­cated on McCart­ney Cres­cent in Lath­lain, has been open since June and con­tains a mix of new and re­cy­cled equip­ment, ro­bust ar­eas for dog play and rum­mag­ing, as well as op­por­tu­ni­ties for dogs to test their agility on ramps, hoops, hur­dles and tun­nels.

Vic­to­ria Park Mayor Trevor Vaughan said the Town had in- vested in the equip­ment for longterm use and a per­ma­nent home would be found for it.

“We have not pre­vi­ously had a fa­cil­ity like this in the Town,” he said. “There’s been a great re­sponse to its in­cep­tion, with many lo­cals and peo­ple from other ar­eas giv­ing us plenty of pos­i­tive feed­back.

“We will look to move the park to a per­ma­nent lo­ca­tion, once the Lath­lain Precinct Re­de­vel­op­ment Project is un­der way and another vi­able space in the vicin­ity be­comes avail­able.” DID YOU KNOW?
