The Hills Shire Council is currently investigating opportunities to provide additional dog off-leash areas in the suburbs of West Pennant Hills and North Kellyville.

The following four reserves are being considered as possible sites in North Kellyville:
• Twickenham Avenue Reserve
• Oxlade Street Reserve
• Indwarra Avenue Reserve
• Barry Road Reserve

The sites for offl-eash areas being considered in West Pennant Hills are:
• Henry Curtis Reserve (Glenroe Avenue/Coonara Avenue – opposite the shopping centre)
• George Thornton Reserve
• Colbarra Place Reserve
• Castlewood Reserve (Highs Road side)
• Richard Webb Reserve (Aiken Road)
• Bellamy Farm Reserve (Isobell Avenue)

Hills Shire Mayor, Dr Michelle Byrne is encouraging residents to have their say on the proposed locations for dog parks.

“We currently have seven existing dog offleash areas in The Hills Shire which are utilised by many in our community,” Mayor Byrne said. “As Mayor, I’m pleased that Council is listening to the community and together with my fellow councillors we have made sure that as part of Council’s Recreation Strategy, West Pennant Hills and North Kellyville are being further considered as possible locations for future dog-off leash areas to ensure dog owners shire wide have access to areas where they can train, socialise and exercise their pets.

“Dog off-leash areas are important facilities in The Hills and we want to hear from the community about where they believe is an ideal spot for additional dog parks,” Mayor Byrne added.
