Local Dog Park Roundup

I recently came across a new Ferny Hills Dog Park Facebook page. I occasionally see streams of invective from dog parks users on Twitter regarding the parks and the owners of other dogs so if you are regular user of these facilities (or rather, your dog is) it might be worthwhile to reach out to other dog owners to talk about your issues instead of shouting them into the internet ether.

If you are looking for a local dog park the list below might help:

  • Thomsett Park on Olakuna Cres Ferny Hills
  • Arbor Street Park on Tramway St Ferny Grove
  • William Scott Park on View Cres & Bunya Rd Arana Hills
  • Sylvia Gibbs Park on Nyora St Everton Hills
  • Wittonga Park on Alutha Rd The Gap
I found this list on which unfortunately does not facilitate direct links to search results. If you need more information that site allows you to search by suburb and nicely summarises the facilities available.

It has been a quiet month in and around Ferny Grove and Ferny Hills (or so it seems to me). Last week State MP Geoff Wilson released is his Wilson Update for August, which seemed to confirm the idea that nothing terribly exciting was going on.

On the other hand I have had a very busy month in my personal life (including buying my first house - in Ferny Hills!) If you know of anything interesting going on in our area that you would like me to publicise, feel free to send me an email or leave a comment.
