Located in the North East corner of the reserve, the nature-based dog agility equipment is designed and built using local sustainably sourced timbers and recycled materials.
The agility area includes tunnels, hoops, steps, zig zags and up and over equipment for four-legged friends, as well as timber log seats for pawrents.
Mayor Jock Barker said the dog agility zone was a great addition for Claremont’s canines and their owners. “The dog agility zone provides a great area for exercise and mobility for animals and their owners. I encourage all Claremont dog owners to come and see the agility course and give it a go.”
The agility zone has been designed and installed by local company Nature Based Play who specialise in unique, sustainable play spaces that reconnect with and re-imagine nature-based environments.
The dog agility zone is a welcome addition to the already social dog-walking spot which provides a safe environment for owners to exercise, socialise and train their dogs, and will be complimented by additional tree planting over the winter season to provide additional shade to the area.
The new pet initiative is partnered with the Town’s ‘Positive Paws’; reward scheme for pet owners. Community safety officers will be patrolling our local parks and facilities and reward owners who are doing the right thing by picking up after their pet and being in effective control of their pet in public spaces.
The goody bags include pet toys, treats and dog disposal bags & dispensers as well as pet information and discounts for local pet suppliers.
To qualify you will need to comply with all of the recommendations of how to keep your pet safe whilst out and about in Claremont which can be found on the Claremont website.
