You can literally see a black fence behind the “Woof woof” sign you posted in the story (middle left of the photo). That is the Dog park. There are two big areas there fenced off.

Yeah, I went up and had a look. I just didn’t think it looked like a dog park. There was a few big ditches and stuff. I don’t know – maybe my idea of what a dog park should look like is different to everyone elses. 🙂

I can see the dog park from the Sekisui House display home. A beautiful home.

And isn’t the vertical white thing (above the first oo) partially hidden by the grass, the drinking fountain in front of the gates?

There is a dog park, from memory the sign is just a little bit down the road from it (I haven’t been there for about a year). Access is from the roundabout at Yeend Avenue and Minty Grove.

There are two separate play areas for the dogs, though from memory it was this park that had the gates pinched last year.
