🐶☕ Meeting point: Happy Days Coffee Van
We are back to meet you all for the festive season! This doggy meet-up will be open to all dog’s breeds, sizes and ages. Everyone is welcome. We only ask people to be responsible and respectful with other dogs, dog owners and people visiting the park.
Christmas outfits are welcome and encouraged but not mandatory.
12pm meet at Happy Days Coffee Van - they offer coffees and hot chocolate to warm up the humans and puppuccinos for doggy visitors.
After getting a cup of coffee and letting the dog's have some fun together, we will head to the Oscar’s (at Smithfield Square - a 10 min walk) for their Christmas Doggy market (starting at 1pm). The Doggy Market is free to visit and will have exhibitors like Dec’s Pets, Fred and Ginger, Frozzys, Wuff and Purr and many other pawsome small businesses. And of course, you can meet Santa Paws and have your photo taken with him. Check Oscar's Instagram page here for more information about tickets to see Santa Paws and get a goodie bag. ;)
Oscars will be allowing dogs inside for brunch, so we highly reccomend it to stick aorund and enjoy a lovely meal. We’ve been there for brunch before, and it’s incredible. ;) Walk-ins are welcome, but you can book a table if you're planning to brunch with 6 people or more.
Please keep the dogs on lead during the meet-up, it is not allowed by park policies, and there might be dogs that are insecure around other dogs or are still learning to socialise. Ask before petting other dogs. We want to have a safe space for everyone.
