YARRALUMLA’S dog park was suddenly shut today (October 23) after arborists deemed it unsafe.
Inspections by ACT government arborists found a number of pine trees dead in the park, which will need be removed for safety reasons.
And, the Bureau of Meteorology’s predictions of thunderstorms and potential flash flooding for this weekend add to these safety concerns, says a Transport Canberra and City Services spokesperson.
The government plans to replace trees removed during the closure and the park is expected to reopen in early November.
Nearby dog parks in O’Connor and Duffy remain open.
