New Napier Dog Park gives dogs a place to run free

Dog Park Taradale 300 x 2Following on from the success of the Dog agility Track at Park Island, Napier City Council has opened another new dog attraction.

The Napier Dog Park is located behind the Pettigrew Green Arena in Taradale and is completely fenced, similar to dog parks you might stumble across in overseas cities.

The Dog Park provides the perfect place for dog owners to let their dogs run free and socialise with other dogs without having to worry about them running away.

Napier City Council Planning Manager Richard Munneke said the usage of the new Dog Agility Track at Park Island has completely blown away the expectations they’ve had, so plans were fast tracked to have the new dog park ready for the spring and summer months.

“The Napier Dog Park also features a Dog Agility Track, dog drinking fountain and outdoor seating area like its Park Island cousin, the only major difference is that it is completely fenced.”

Usage of the Dog Park can be varied, from dogs that need to be socialised, require training or have limited recall.  It is particularly suited to owners who have limited mobility to take their dogs for long walks, or for young dogs who are still a little unpredictable off lead.

“In summary it’s a great place to take your dogs and let them be dogs, have fun and get plenty of exercise.”
