Wellington's Fully Fenced Dog Park #2 Ian Galloway Park

from
Exciting news! 3/02/2016
Wellington is getting another fully fenced dog park! 
The first one at Cog Park, Evans Bay, although relatively small, has been welcomed by dog owners and this one at
 Ian Galloway Park will be too I'm sure! 

Here's what the Open Space & Parks Manager from WCC has to say..........
 "Work on the fenced dog-exercise area at Ian Galloway Park will be starting next week.
The dog exercise area has been shifted to the east of the park, next to Curtis Street.
The new area is being fully fenced, with three double gates – one next to the car park, the other off Curtis Street and the other on the west side next to the BMX track.
 Please see the below (and attached) landscape plan. 
Many thanks to those of you who have provided input to the final plan.
We know that drainage will be a challenge for us all this winter. If funding is available after the fencing has been completed, we are hoping to try some grass mounds to try to alleviate some of the hollows and wet spots. 
Please bear with us as works progress and we hope you enjoy the new fenced dog exercise area.



 Some interesting history on Ian Galloway Park, named after
Ian Galloway who was a former Director of Parks and Recreation.

The site was the Western Landfill or Wilton Tip as it was known, operated between 1946-1973. This explains the uneven surface and drainage issues.

 

Had to Bath the Dog...

Had to bath the dog....
  due to a incident with some poop in the park, Churton Park Dog Exercise Area on Halswater Dr actually. Someone failed to scoop their dogs poop, one minute she's sniffing, the next she's dropped her shoulder and rolling! Yuk! No it wasn't funny. Twice in two days!
One of the hazards of dog walking.
 Could have used Cecilia's Pampered Pooch Dog Hair Salon Dog Bath services!
Cecilia and Pampered Pooch have recently relocated from 8 Frank Johnson St, Johnsonville, on the motorway overbridge, to # 64 Ohariu Road, Johnsonville next to the Meekwoods Reserve Dog Park up above Johnsonville Main School.
Ohariu Road runs into Cunliff Street & Churton Park - very handy for anyone from there needing a Dog Groomer http://www.pamperedpooch.co.nz
 Talking of Churton Park...
