Albany Creek’s John Leitch Memorial Park To Have Off-Leash Dog Facility This February

Albany Creek residents and their pet dogs will soon be able to enjoy an off-leash area for dogs at John Leitch Memorial Park.

Construction work has begun for the facility. Councillor Mark Charlton announced on his Facebook page that works on the project started on the 4th of Feb. It is estimated to be completed within two weeks, weather permitting.

The off-leash area within the park will have separate enclosed facilities for small dogs and large dogs. Each area will also have water bubblers, waste disposal bins and ample seating for the owners.

Trees will also be planted and set-up at the park to provide the shade and cool air for park visitors.

The Moreton Bay Regional Council approved the construction of the off-leash dog area with a $40,000 budget. It has been included in the Council’s 2018/19 funding for Division 9 roads and infrastructure upgrades, as well as facilities renovation projects.

“Council’s 2018/19 budget focuses on local road and waterway projects, while continuing to promote a healthy and active lifestyle in our region through investment in sport and recreation facilities in Division 9,” the press release cited.
