Dog Park soon to be unleashed in Kilmore

Dogs of Kilmore will soon have an official off-lead park near the Kilmore Racecourse to call their own thanks to $30,000 from the Victorian Government’s Building Works package.


Construction on the park, near the Kilmore Racecourse began in July. The off-lead dog park is fully fenced and will include a drinking fountain.

The purpose-built space means dog owners can exercise their beloved pets in a controlled environment and socialise their dogs with other dogs and dog park visitors.

Mitchell Shire hopes the dog park will be ready to open in the next month or so, pending the lifting of stage 3 restrictions and adding the final touches.

Mayor David Lowe hopes the dog park will both formalise the use of the area and provide a place for both dogs and their owners to socialise.

“With Kilmore growing fast and the area already being used for dog exercise informally, we saw an opportunity to create the dog park.


“We know our furry friends are feeling the impacts of COVID restrictions to, so it will be great for people in Kilmore to have somewhere to come to exercise and socialise their dogs once restrictions ease,” Mayor Lowe said.

A code of conduct for the site and opening hours are yet to be announced.
