About the project
Mt Albert Park is located off the Southern Walkway, near the junction of Volga Street and Mt Albert Road.
Wellington’s first fenced dog exercise area was opened at Cog Park on Evans Bay Parade in 2012. It was completed with funding from the Wellington Charitable Vet Fund and Hataitai Residents Association.
In the 2016/2017 Annual Plan the Council committed to creating three more fenced dog exercise areas over the next two years. The first of these was opened at Ian Galloway Park, Wilton in April 2016, followed by Taylor Park, Tawa in July, 2017
The Council has been working to identify a third suitable location in the Southern suburbs since 2017.
