Alma Treloar Reserve is a large reserve located on the corner of McBride Street and Pakenham Road in the heart of Cockatoo. It is home to many community facilities including the Ash Wednesday Bushfire Education Centre. The dog off-leash area will be located in the centre of the reserve, to the south of the existing car park.


Council completed community consultations to gather feedback on the draft concept design.


This feedback from the community informed the need for flexible open space to cater for community events such as markets and the circus. The design was adjusted enable to the community to access the space as a dog off-leash area, but also as overflow carparking for events.

  • a range of agility equipment 
  • seating
