Hurstbridge Dog Park
The Hurstbridge offleash dog park is located at 12 Arthurs Creek Road, Hurstbridge
What are the activity zones?
The park has three different zones to accommodate all types of dogs.
Zone 1 – Play/runabout zone - this zone provides a space where dogs can run free and where there are stimulating environments to explore. It includes mounding and climbable features, open run about areas and rock features for climbing.
Zone 2 – Education/training zone - this zone is to support the early stages of dog obedience training and includes built-in agility training equipment.
Zone 3 – Small dog/Timeout zone - this zone creates an area where small or timid dogs can play leash-free away from larger dogs. The space can also act as a time-out area for owners who want to temporarily remove their dogs from the energy of the park to settle them down.
