Townsville residents love their fitness and their dogs, combine the two and it's no surprise that locals are calling for a dog park to be created at one of Townsville's fitness hot spots.
Local pawrent Tony Robinson has started the petition on change.org to have a dog park at Jezzine Barracks.
"It would be great if dog owners could take their dog to the Strand and let them off lead in the park. There are no dog parks anywhere near the strand," Tony wrote on the petition.
The closest off lead dog park to the Strand at the moment is at Philp Street in Hermit Park.
