Ballam Park Dog Agility Park

The Dog Agility Park gives dogs a great way to exercise. They can weave, dodge, climb, balance, crawl and jump over hurdles until their hearts content.

The tennis court sized fully fenced dog park located along the rear fence line of Ballam Park features hurdles of differing heights, jump through hurdles, balance beams, a crawl tunnel, weave poles bridge and sit-stay platforms. There is also a grassed area with picnic facilities, seating and a drink tap with dog bowl.

The new park is an initiative of Council’s Domestic Animal Management Plan adopted in 2017, is made entirely of recycled material from local Carrum Downs business Replas and provides an ideal setting for dogs to socialise with other pets in a safe environment that allows off-leash exercise.
