Wet and wild idea for pooch park in Palmo
PALMERSTON could soon become a doggie playground if one resident gets her way.
Michelle Redman wants to see a water park for pooches to play around in during the hot wet season months.
She has suggested the park be constructed right next to the Palmerston Water Park – making use of the unused space and already built carpark.
She posted the idea to social media after being inspired by a dog water park in Spain.
Her idea is to have a small dog pool and big dog pool and a large grassed area for the dogs to run around on. Ms Redman said the park would also be fully fenced.
“As an animal lover I would like to see a place where you can feel comfortable and content and go and have fun and be there with your furry babies,” she said.
Ms Redman has taken the idea to Palmerston Council, who have invited her to attend the next Palmerston Animal Management Group meeting to pitch her idea.
She said it was great that her idea hadn’t been knocked back straight away and that she would have a chance to pitch it to council management.
Palmerston already has a dog park at Marlow Lagoon but the ponds and lagoon are not for the use of dog owners and pets.
