Nortons Park, part of a chain of parks in the Dandenong Valley, boasts rolling grassed lawns that give the park a definite European feel. The land was once an orchard, and still contains a number of remnant fruit trees that burst into bloom in springtime. It is a great place to picnic with friends or, for the more energetic, work out on the cross country running track.

Dogs are permitted in the park provided they are on a leash and under control of their owners at all times. Please note that dogs are not permitted in the adjoining Shepherds Bush conservation area.

    Parks Victoria is trialling Nortons Park, in Wantirna South, as a new dog-friendly area where visitors can have their dogs off lead. The whole park area of fifteen hectares, including the barbecue and picnic area, will be one of the biggest play spaces for dogs and their owners in the metro area.

    This is a fantastic park to take a dog to. Big enough for our dog, who is easily intimidated by other dogs, can run around on her own.
