One local furry resident was excited after the Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale’s parks and gardens team carried out rejuvenation works at the Byford Bark Park.
German Shepherd Mosby enjoyed the sandpit after works were undertaken to prevent flooding in the large dog area over the winter months.
The Byford Bark Park is an off-lead park dedicated to dogs located on Larsen Road in Byford.
Agility equipment is placed at the park, which has two dedicated areas, one for small dogs and the other for big dogs.
The Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale recognised the need to have a public space where dogs can be walked and exercised safely.
For the safety of all shire residents and fur-companions, dogs must remain on leash and held by a person capable of controlling the dog in any public place within shire boundaries, except in approved dog exercise areas.
Dogs are not permitted off-lead in any street (including verge area) and in any place without property owner’s permission.
The Byford Bark Park is one of two off-lead areas in the shire, Bill Hicks Reserve off-lead is only permitted between the hours of 5am and 9am.
Dogs must remain under effective control at all times and owners or handlers should be considerate of others.
