Sweeney Reserve Dog Park

Petrie

UNFORTUNATELY MUCH OF THIS PARK WAS DESTROYED IN THE 2011 FOLLD AND HAS YET TO BE RESTORED BY COUNCIL. THERE IS A SMALL OFF LEASH AREA NOW THAT SADLY IS  A SHADOW OF WHAT WAS..

It may be a hike from the CBD but it’s hard to top this Taj Mahal of dog parks when it comes to space, nature and amenities, occupying what was an interwar recreational hotspot for day-trippers and, ironically, before that a cattle watering stop on the way on their way to the slaughter yards in Petrie.

Fenced on three sides it uses the Pine River as a natural barrier on the fourth – here there are plenty of shaded spots for owners to sit and throw a stick in the water or relax in a camp chair with a book while the dog explores the vast area of bushes, lake, and trees. With plenty of drinking taps and doggy bags and benches it’s well equipped right down to the rotunda and gas barbecue within the enclosure.

There are children’s play facilities on the other side of the carpark, albeit in a space smaller than that of the dog park.
