The Elenora Dog Park is one of the best dog parks in Brisbane - if you have a large dog. The park area for large dogs is enormous and has trees for shade and also two covered seating areas for protection against rain and heat. However, the small dog area is tiny in comparison, has no shade what-so-ever and no agility equipment. Often it is the topic of conversation that small dog owners feel compelled to bring their dogs into the large dog area so that they can use the space, use the equipment and play with other dogs as the small dog park is often empty due to the unappealing nature of it both for the dogs and the owners. It seems unnecessary and unfair to have all the facilities on one side and not on both. I also know many small dog owners who do not use the park simply because of the extreme lack of facilities - shade etc in that park and who are too scared to take their dog into the big dog park.

Your petitioners therefore request that the fence that separates the two parks is moved so that it travels through the middle of the trees. It would be nice to have a covered seating area also, however, even to share the trees would provide shade and more space for small dogs and their owners to enjoy. Many of the big dog owners agree.
