Council has unanimously endorsed Hurstville Park and Merv Lynch Reserve in Beverly Hills as off-leash dog parks at the Council meeting on 27 February 2023.
The additional off-leash dog parks will help to meet increasing community demand for more open spaces for community members and their animal companions in the Georges River LGA.
Georges River Council Mayor Nick Katris said, “We know how much our community values open spaces and now families and their pets can make use of designated off-leash areas at eleven locations across the Peakhurst, Blakehurst, Kogarah Bay, and Hurstville wards.
“Thank you to everyone who has shared feedback and trialled the new off-leash dog parks in Beverly Hills and Hurstville.”
This endorsement follows community consultation and trial at the two sites in October.
The new off-leash dog parks are located at:
Hurstville Park – Corner of Gordon and Patrick Street, Hurstville
Merv Lynch Reserve – 42 Edgbaston Road Beverly Hills
