Locals were happy to see the new play equipment and shade sails at Dunvegan Park, which only had a pathway prior to the upgrades. Councillor for Calamvale Ward Angela Owen said they will consider a basketball half-court and a dog park in the area for future stages when funding becomes available.

Parents can enjoy the shady spaces whilst letting their little ones have fun with the new play equipment at Peden Court Park in Calamvale. Aside from a playground area, the park also features a picnic area that would be perfect for families.

Brisbane City Council has successfully delivered an off-leash dog park in Drewvale. Before, dog owners in the area would have to go all the way to Brown Plains, which is 1.9 km away from Drewvale for a fenced dog park. After years of asking for a dog park, residents can now enjoy an off-leash dog park nearby.

Cr Owen reminded dog owners to follow BCC’s important rules for using off-leash parks, such as cleaning after the dog, walking the dog on a lead, and training and socialising it. Cr Owen also highlighted the importance of following the Council’s requirement for dog owners to construct an adequate fence around their property to protect both their dog and their neighbourhood.
