Cassia, Kwinana is home to many dog lovers who have made the smart decision to live in a community surrounded by nature and modern amenity. When choosing your new home there is a lot to think about. Are there the education options your family needs? Is the commute to work reasonable? Are there plentiful entertainment options nearby?
For the pet-lovers amongst us, there is another question to ask: ‘Will my dog be happy here?’. Our furry friends are very much a part of our family and their happiness matters too! That’s why we’ve created a selection of our favourite dog walking spots for you to explore.
HARRY MCGUIGAN PARK, MEDINA
Harry McGuigan Park is a popular spot with dog owners. The park is designated by the City of Kwinana as a dog exercise area, so you know you’re in good company! Facilities are also there for the whole family to enjoy including a half court with a basketball ring, practice wall and swings!Established deciduous trees provide summer shade over most seating so you can relax while your pup burns off their extra energy. With a picnic table and further shaded seating, Harry McGuigan Park is also an ideal spot to head to for a picnic lunch with the family or to catch up with a friend!
SPECTACLES ABORIGINAL HERITAGE TRAIL, THE SPECTACLES
Spectacles Aboriginal Heritage Trail is a 5km trail perfect for a family walk with your dog. The paperbark-lined wetlands are ideal surroundings for you to take in The Spectacles while walking off your weekend treats!Remember, it’s important to keep your furry friend on a lead at all times.
PEACE PARK, PARMELIA
The nearby Peace Park is a great option for you to take your furry companion. Complete with an exercise area fenced off for dogs, you have peace of mind you can let your pup off their lead to run free, out of harm’s way. Inside the area, you’ll find a variety of obstacles to play with as well as a tap of drinking water just for dogs!Within the fenced area, there are two benches for you to relax on while your pooch entertains themselves. Outside the designated exercise area, the trees provide a canopy that covers picnic tables and a BBQ. It is a great place for a BBQ picnic lunch on a sunny day.
VISIT YOUR LOCAL DOG BEACH
One of our favourite ways to unwind after a long day at the office is grabbing a coffee, taking our best friend to the beach and dipping our toes in the water!There are two much-loved dog beaches just a short drive from Cassia: C Y O’Connor Beach to the north, in North Coogee, and Weld Street Beach just to the south in Rockingham.
