Off-leash dog park in Kerikeri

Feedback period closes 5:00pm, Thursday 15 December.


Council is investigating options for a new dog park in Kerikeri. We would like your feedback to help us understand the need for a dog park and community priorities for a dog park.

There are 236 council-owned reserves within 10km of Kerikeri township. Of these reserves, one stood out as the most suitable in land area, terrain and location for a designated off-leash dog park. This land is located at the end of Waitotara Drive (see the survey for a map of the proposed area). 

We have developed two draft concepts that we would like your feedback on. Option 1 covers minimum requirements while option 2 includes additional possibilities that are seen in popular dog parks across the country. To achieve option 2, we would need to consider alternative options for resourcing the project such as community volunteer support. This is because the funding allocated to this project would not cover the extras in the second option. Please let us know in the survey below if you would be interested in supporting this project as a volunteer.

Check out the draft concepts below then complete the survey to share your feedback on a proposed dog park in Kerikeri.
