Councillor Don Palmer Providing Local Leadership & Working for You

Council last night determined to consider an allocation of up to $150k in the 2014/15 budget deliberations for partnering with Adelaide City Council in the establishment of a fenced dog park in the South Park Lands. 

With open space so precious in Unley and community debates rage every time there is a proposal for dog use in any of our parks this is a timely initiative.

Certainly it takes the heat off of some parks in Unley that were being investigate as possible future dog parks. This in included Goodwood South’s very own Page Park. Page Park being made an exclusive dog area would no have been good as far as this little puppy is concerned. The news that we will look at the South Parklands comes therefore as good news.

This means Council’s administration can progress discussions with Adelaide City Council regarding a funding partnership to establish a fenced dog park in the South Park Lands.

It is far from a fait accompli however as all we have done is get it into the budget process. Therefore. Watch this space.
