Carine Fenced Dog Park Remediation

The City is proposing remediation works to improve the management and access of the fenced dog park at Carine Open Space. Closing date: 8 December 2023

ATTENTION: All Carine Canines

The City is undertaking remediation works to improve the management and access at the fenced dog park. 

Proposed works include;

  • Realignment of the fencing to remove the steep section at the top of the dog park
  • Provision of a universal path from the northern car park
  • Installation of a staircase for direct access from the informal parking off Okely Road.

The City will be hosting a 'run-through' of the proposed changes with the local community and the City's Access and Inclusion Advisory Group.  Please join us at the dog park on Tuesday 21 November from 4.00pm to 5.00pm. 

To provide comment on the proposed remediation works, please contact Cara Clifton, Parks and Sustainability on (08) 9205 8555 or submit an enquiry via


Is the lawn being repaired?

Yes, the lawn will be replaced as part of the remedial works. 

Can the smaller area have more agility equipment?

Due to space restrictions, additional agility equipment is included only in the larger fenced space. The smaller fenced areas will have the other forms of enrichment including seating, drink fountain and sand pit.


How will access to the fenced dog park change?

A new staircase will provide a direct access path from the informal car park to the new entry point at the top of the park.

Alternatively, park visitors can use the gentle ramp from the car park located north of the Dog Park. It will be possible to enter both the large and small fenced areas from the ramp and stairs.

Access to the Dog Park from the bottom of the embankment will remain unchanged.

Will the remediation works have an impact on the weekly Park Run event?

The City has liaised with the Park Run organisers to ensure there is no impact on the Park Run.

What will happen to the fenced dog park while remedial works take place?

For reasons of health and safety, the fenced dog park will be closed while construction takes place. Dog users may still use Carine Regional Open space to exercise their dogs off leash during this time. Dogs must still be under effective control at all times, regardless of whether they are in the Fenced Dog Park, or in the wider Carine Open Space area.

Alternatively, there are a number of fenced dog parks across the City of Stirling, including at Dianella Regional Open Space, Charles Riley Reserve in North Beach, Inglewood Oval and Princess Wallington Reserve in Balga.

What will happen next?

Community engagement will take place from 10 November 2023 to 8 December 2023. With engagement outcomes shaping the final remediation works.
