Please note that the hoses at Council’s water refill stations at Archery Park, Corella Road and Imbil have been removed to protect public health. It has been pointed out that the hoses are often dragged across the ground, and some users of these facilities are draping the hoses into chemical tanks. As it isn’t possible to guarantee the cleanliness of the hoses, they were removed. So users of these sites will have to bring their own hose.
Located next door to the dump point is the Archery Park Dog Park, the region’s first off-leash dog park, which opened up back in 2015.
There is a 1.2-metre high chain mesh fence with an access gate for dogs/handlers, a small shelter over one bench seat with an additional one bench seat located under existing trees, a drinking fountain with dog bowl attachment, lighting on timers to light up the entrance and shelter; and a dog tidy bag dispenser and waste bin outside of the fenced area.
It’s been mentioned to be an excellent place to unhitch and park your caravan while you go shopping in Gympie.
