The wait is over, the Pokeno Dog Park has been finished.
Located on Avon Road, it is surrounded with stock-proof fencing and a rubbish bin has been installed. There are additional gates to make it easier for the public to access and there is a new carpark.
"We hope to get a sign installed soon, but the public are more than welcome to start taking their dogs there. We hope they enjoy their new park," says Megan May, Animal Control Team Leader.
Enzo, Sky and Charlie Brown were the first poochies to try out the new facility, and judging by their faces, it looks as though they approve!
