    This Park is not the best of parks in canberra as dogs can get in and out at there pleasure, my dog ran away from home once last year and found his way into the dog park but as soon as we got there my dog pushed the gate open and got out he ended up in an animal hospital after being hit by a car he is now aware of his surroundings and is wise but in the future I would rather not like to experience this again in the future I hope the park would look forward to improving its safety and security to try and get rid of these ” accidents”.

      Juliana why don’t you stop whining and do something about. Sounds like you live in the community why don’t you get a bit of community spirit and conact the government or the radio etc to see if someone can come to fix it or better still organise someone to come fix yourself maybe.

      Hi is there any up to date info? Are the fences fixed? Just about to try my first dog park with new rescue pooch and was hoping for some better feedback.

        I just took my puppy there this morning. I don’t like it at all. The fence/gate seemed ok to the small dog area. But it’s so horrible! And people haven’t been picking up their dogs poo :(
        Not planning on taking her back

    Unfortunately the gates seem to be broken quite often at this park. We really enjoy our time there (especially speaking for the dogs) but it is in need of regular maintenance especially of the gates, and a separate entry area for the smaller/older/sick dog section would possible be helpful, as although people are generally quite respectful about waiting and allowing people time to clear the common fenced entry areas there are some people who just have no social skills or common sense. Fortunately these are very few in number and generally the park is a very positive community. There is a need for better lighting.

    I would like to point out that the parks here are great, I’ve never been to one before with my new puppy and I felt that the Tugg dog park (both pens) are good enough for my pup to tire himself out.

    I took my pup to the small pen for a couple of weeks before venturing into the big pen where he was immediately greeted by big friendly dogs. Owners do ENSURE that their dogs don’t get too rough among the smaller breed so you honestly don’t have much to worry about. I’ve seen a toy poodle playing with huskies and boxers, this is how playful and nice the dogs are.

    The best thing about this park is the variety of dogs that come in, it’s a great environment and I look forward to taking my collie to the park soon after she is vaccinated.

    The best time for my pup to go in is around 6pm (daylight saving time) as the numbers are low and he is already familiar with the dogs there. If I feel like he is being overwhelmed by bigger dogs, I just simply move him into the small pen for a breather or walk him around the park so he can regain his strength.
