Proposed dog off leash area - Black Stump Park, Point Vernon


Fraser Coast residents are being encouraged to have their say on a proposal for a new dog off leash area at Point Vernon.

Cr Jade Wellings said Council was considering adding a fenced dog off-leash area that could include dog agility equipment, shelter and seating beside the Black Stump Park and playground.

“The Gatakers Bay foreshore at Point Vernon is one of the region’s most popular destinations,” she said.

“People go there for everything from quiet reflection, beach walking, fishing, boating, weddings and family gatherings and to visit the playground.
“Council is now considering adding a new dog off leash area and we want to hear what residents have to say about the proposal.”

The below survey asks for feedback on the proposed location and the type of infrastructure residents would like to see included in the off-leash area – such as dog agility equipment and seating.

Council’s Open Space and Environment team will collate the results from the survey and work closely with the community to provide areas that will help shape the future development of Point Vernon into an even better destination. This type of public consultation provides council with a true indication of how we can make the most of our fantastic region.
