No whiffing or sniffing for one day please pups - Duffy dog park to close for weed spraying

Released 08/02/2019

With weed spraying activity scheduled for Monday 11 February 2019, Duffy dog park will be closed for one day only as a precaution to ensure pets and their owners remain safe.

“Crews from Transport Canberra and City Services will be targeting Blackberry weed which is prevalent around the park,” Acting Director of Place Management, Brian Bathgate said.

“Weather permitting, the herbicide Stinger will be used which requires only two hours to dry before the area is safe to use. To help ensure safety for all users of the dog park, we are taking the extra precaution of closing it for one full day.”

Signage is in place at the park, located on Warragamba Avenue, to inform users of its planned closure. The park will reopen on Tuesday 12 February 2019.

TCCS apologises for any inconvenience this may cause.

Dog owners should be aware that once the weeds have been sprayed and the herbicide has dried, they will be safe if any contact is made by dogs or their owners.
