    Residents of the area did not seem to know it was designated off lead & i got alot of disaproving looks from on lead dog walkers (dispite clear sign postings!) It’s not great. the amount of sporting areas & children’s play areas means dogs need to be on lead most of the time anyway.
    Coolong is 100% better & a prefferable close by option.

    Dear Doggo readers;
    Due to new concern, we have placed a new fenced off area for dogs. This well sized area is split into two, a small area for smaller dogs and a large area for large dogs. We provide services for you to remove your dog’s accidents, and water for them to drink. This area is opposite Crestwood Public School, off Peel Rd. Because of this new area, we encourage dog owners to use this safer facility for dog socialising, as the rest of Crestwood Reserve will revert back to an on-leash area.
    Thank you

        There are taps (x2) over near the scouts hut and toilet block. Bit of a walk yes, but they’re there if you need them.

    Yep been back now & it is all new & nice.
    Haven’t got a clue why they bothered to create two seperate areas as the dogs that go to parks mingle fine, seems a waste of what could have been a bigger area for all.
    BUT due to the newness, it’s clean, well maintained, VERY sercure (no chance of any escapes) Still not as good as castle hill, but a closer & adequate playpark noe the less

      It.s great that the dogs are separated bigger dogs can easily injure smaller dogs by even playing with no intent to hurt the smaller ones

    Jen: it’s actually not such a bad thing that the area is divided, there have been issues even through the fence, and in some cases the different sizes just don’t mix.

    racquel, go sometime in the late afternoon maybe? if you’re lucky, you can get a couple or several similar sized dogs

    Yeah…well! This park is ok but, found it lacking water, seats and tables. There is plenty of shade so happy to take our own chairs :} See you in the small dog park on Sundays 10am -12pm. Come and play. I missed you ‘Mitsi’ & ‘Cooper’

    Smaller dogs have big dog syndrome Jen and certain breeds can get hurt very easily if getting stepped on (just a normal play with a big dog) i.e mini dachies. I think its a great idea to have them separated.

      Small dogs DO NOT get hurt by a bigger dog stepping on them, I’m sorry to say that is nonsense.

      They do however get little dog syndrome if owners don’t let them mingle with bigger dogs. Actually in most cases the owners have ” ‘My little dog has xyz syndrome’ syndrome” while the dogs just want to get out there and play, assuming they haven’t been over protected too long.

        Absolutely agree. The issues come from the dog owner, not the dogs. It causes more hassle for all concerned if the dogs are separate. Dogs are pack animals – packs of all sizes! I own medium size spaniels – so not exactly large dogs but it’s annoying none-the-less!

    Thanks to the council of Baulkham hills for creating this small dogs off leash park. I was there yesterday and it’s an awesome park. Just need to put some grass and more water access. Other than that it is a great park. Great to have parts for the big dogs and small dogs. Lots of small dog getting attacked by the big dogs and some big dog owners doesn’t even care if their dogs hurts other people.

      That is the stupidest thing I have heard. I cant image that you have witnessed “lots of small dogs getting attacked by the bigger dogs. I live in Leichhardt and own 2 bigger dogs who love little dogs. If you knew anything about dogs psychology or were bothered to educate yourself, you would know that little dogs are not a threat to big dogs and therefore don’t bother with them unless its for play, but you might just be the type of stupid person that picks up their little dog in fear when you see a big dog. Do yourself a favour and visit the dog park in Leichhardt Hawthorne Canal Reserve – Canal Rd Leichhardt. Just so you can witness first hand how all size dogs get on well. And try reading a book on dog psychology!

    was walking past today and seen a man pick his dog pull by its neck and throw it on the ground and then started verbally abusing an elder man in the park say things like “where is your weapon C**t” “My dog will rip you apart or how about I just shoot you in your ugly face”

    not sure I recommend the park if thats the kinda carry on that goes on there

    I just wish there was a comprehensive site that could detail where we could take our dogs off lead.
    Hoping to retire to the Mid North Coast in the Old Bar’ Port Macquarie area and we want to move near a dog friendly beach within in walking distance.
    We cant think of anything better than just walking along the beach with our two Golden Retrievers.

    There are some nasty comments out there. Not too sure why some dog owners take offence to people’s opinions. I take my dog to many different dog parks in Peel and they all have their pros and cons but my biggest concern is always that particular dog owner who thinks their dog can do no wrong, probably the same person who think their children do no wrong. It doesn’t matter whether their dog is big or small, it’s always the same scenario. The owner is sitting somewhere in the park smoking or drinking their coffe as their dog terrorizes both dog and human. Or they think their dog is just playing but meanwhile the poor dog it’s playing with is scared and not having fun. Same person who never picks up after their dog as well. I look at the dog parks as a fine example of our communities, 99% of the dogs are good, it’s that 1% who ruin it for everyone.
