Thomas Oval - Dedicated Dog Park

In May this year Stonnington was awarded funding under the Victorian Government’s Local Parks (dog parks) Program, to develop a dedicated dog park at Thomas Oval in South Yarra. Council has also committed funding to the project, from the Creating Open Space reserve.

Last year, we asked the community for ideas on what they would like to see in a dedicated dog park and these ideas have informed the Draft Concept Plan for Thomas Oval Dog Park. We now invite the community to have their say one the Draft Concept Plan.

We expect final designs will be released to the community in mid-2021 and, subject to Council endorsement, construction could begin in late-2021.
