Athlone Gardens - Dog Agility

Closed 20 Dec 2020

Opened 9 Nov 2020

Feedback updated 9 Mar 2021

We asked

In late 2020 we ran a consultation on the existing dog agility area and it’s relocation at Athlone Gardens. Residents and park users gave us their views on the existing area and on its relocation.

You said

  • Most people ‘agreed’ that the Dog Agility area benefits Athlone Gardens
  • Many people ‘disagreed’ that the park should become ‘dog on lead only’ if the Dog Agility area is improved
  • Most people would like to see a larger Dog Agility area located away from the playground.

We did

The results of this consultation will now be used as a basis for relocating the dog agility area within the park.


The Council are seeking the views of park users and residents on the dog agility area and its relocation at Athlone Gardens. The dog agility area is currently located in an area that is due to be handed over to Catalyst Housing in November 2020.

Why your views matter

In early 2021, phase two of the park will be reopened to the public, this is the site of the current haul road. This will provide an opportunity to relocate the dog agility area into this space. The remaining area of the current haul road will become grass land until the final park design is decided following a public consultation planned for 2021/22.

Please provide your views on this consultation by no later than Sunday 20 December 2020.
