Wet and wild idea for pooch park in Palmo

Sunday Territorian - - NEWS -

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.
