Southern Barossa Dog Park open

Dog lovers and their four-legged friends can now enjoy the Southern Dog Park, which has opened in Williamstown.

The fully-fenced park is located at Queen Victoria Jubilee Park and features pedestrian gates, dog bag dispenser, bin and water fountain situated in a beautiful natural setting.

It complements the existing Northern Dog Park in Nuriootpa.

“It’s wonderful that we have now opened dog parks in the north and south of the Barossa, giving people more opportunities to be actively engaged in recreation and socialisation with fellow dog lovers,” said Mayor Bim Lange.

“Both parks are located in a beautiful natural setting and deliver on the features that were prioritised by the community during consultation.

"This project has been made possible through Council’s partnership with the State Government and I’m confident it will deliver long-term health and wellbeing outcomes for our community.”

The southern and northern dog parks have been made possible through Council's partnership with the State Government, which contributed $100,000 through the office of Member for Schubert Stephan Knoll.
