Knox Pets in the Park 2017

Pets in the park

Council will hold its annual Knox Pets in the Park, on Sunday 9 April 2017 at Gilbert Park Reserve on Ferntree Gully Road, Knoxfield.

This is fantastic day, full of free activities for the whole family and their pets. 2016 was a huge success and it was great to see so many well behaved pets on a day to encourage and promote responsible pet ownership.


In 2016 the event was hosted by Channel 10's Walt Collins and featured a variety of talks and performances by Animals of Oz, Victor and Victoria and Paul Jamieson and Bongo, Edgars Mission, Australian Rat Fanciers as well as the Pet Parade Competition.

We also had demonstrations from the German Shepherd Club, Howling Huskies, Melbourne Canine Freestyle, Alpha Canine Group there was lots to keep everyone entertained throughout the day.

We will announce our 2017 line-up in due course.


There was a huge exhibitor area in 2016 featuring pet related products and services.
Pets were spoilt with tasty gourmet pet food, the latest in pet accessories, toys and even grooming services and products.
