Thank you to all community members who had their say, council’s project team are now evaluating the feedback.

Project Overview

Dog exercise areas (DEAs) are activity spaces provided to promote social and physical health for dogs and their owners. DEA’s may be fenced or unfenced and may include the following, depending on the site:

  • caters for dogs of various sizes
  • park shelter and shaded seating
  • water tap with dog bowl
  • concrete access paths
  • dog bag dispensers and rubbish bin/signage
  • shade tree planting
  • if fenced: a 1.2 metre high, black chain wire fence with two self-closing access gates is typically provided

Please see the DEA design example.

Additional off-street parking is not being considered; facility users will need to park on-street or be within walking distance of the DEA.

Community Engagement

Over the past several years Council has received numerous requests for a dog exercise area for Buderim and we would like to understand community opinions about this idea.

In Buderim, Khancoban Park has been selected as the most suitable park to locate a DEA. Three possible locations within the park have been identified and Council is seeking feedback and comments on these options.

Please refer to the image below for location of sites.

Next Steps

Feedback received during this engagement phase will help Council understand the community demand and best location for a DEA.

The construction of the proposed DEA has not been scheduled. If the community supports the project, it will be developed in stages subject to detailed design and funding availability in future financial years.

Council is committed to providing high quality open space that supports active and healthy communities and we look forward to working together to get the best outcome for Buderim.
