Community Information Session

Sydney Gateway construction team will close the off-leash dog park on Smith Street Tempe near the old golf driving range.

It will be replaced temporarily with a new off-leash temporary dog park near the model car racetrack on Holbeach Avenue, near Tempe Reserve. It will remain there until construction of Sydney Gateway is complete in late 2024.

A new permanent off leash dog park will be built near the current location at Smith Street, when construction of Sydney Gateway is complete. This is included in the Inner West Council Tempe Reserve Plan of Management and Master Plan.

The final design for the temporary dog park has separate fenced areas for small and large dogs. It will also include park furniture, water bubblers, rubbish bins and flood lights for safety at night.

If you would like to learn more about the new temporary dog park and the project, Sydney Gateway team is holding a Community Information Session at the current off-leash dog park on Saturday 8 May from 10am to 2pm.
