A new off-leash dog park is being constructed at Lancaster Park, Soldiers Point from mid-April to mid-May 2019.


We have conducted community consultation from 23 July to 26 August 2018 regarding the possibility of making a new off-leash area for dogs in Soldiers Point. The feedback from the community was reviewed and Council resolved to adopt Lancaster Park as a fenced off-leash dog exercise area with off-leash area time restricted to 7.00am to 7.00pm.

Design considerations

  • Maintain a buffer of 10m off adjoining residential boundaries.
  • Ulitilise natural fence materials to compliment the character of the site.
  • Double gate entry points.
  • Install compliance signage.
