Join us for two hours of doggy fun to celebrate the opening of Providence’s first dog park with our fourth annual Dogs on Patrol event. Stay for dinner and shop for doggy treats at the Ripley Markets.

Workshops, displays and information stalls.

As this is an official opening, the first ever dog park at Providence! It is an historic moment. Typically the dignitaries turn up and cut the ribbon for this type of occasion but this time, we want a community member (with or without their four legged best friend) to open the park. Let us know why it should be you? Or nominate someone else. Open to all ages.

To nominate yourself or someone else please click here

You can also enter one of the competitions or games on the day

My Dog has Talent
Dog that most looks like Owner
Musical Sit (musical chairs for dogs)

Collect a free Dogs on Patrol dog tag & have your tag engraved for free, thanks to Ipswich District Crime Prevention Unit.

To help celebrate the opening we have also launched a photo competition!

Take a pic of your four-legged best friend (canine variety) to win!

The theme for the photography competition is dog or dogs.

  1. Junior – 16 years and under
