There are over 2,000 registered dogs in Billerica. Where do you go with your dog in Billerica? The Billerica Dog Park Committee wants to establish and maintain a Dog Park in the Town of Billerica for them to run, play, and socialize with other dogs. We support other pet friendly projects as well.

Billerica Dog Park. Coming Summer 2017. Really!
That's right. Our park will open next summer. Get Pumped!
Thanks again, Billerica, for your support and patience.
Thank you Billerica!
A funny thing happened on the way to raising $42,000 for Billerica's first dog park. We started working towards an application for a grant from the Stanton Foundation. The Stanton Foundation Foundation will fund a significant portion of the park. So, we now have what is needed to apply for a Stanton grant. All totaled, we have raised $25,720. Along with a grant from Stanton, Billerica will get its dog park.
Thank you Billerica!
We are currently finalizing an application with The Stanton Foundation, and expect to submit it this month. The Stanton Foundation, created by Dr. Frank Stanton, supports areas where he was unable to complete his charitable intentions during his lifetime. One of those areas is Canine welfare and Dog Parks for Massachusetts. If approved, they will fund the majority of our costs, and help us a achieve an even better park. Think water feature and landscaping, a shade pavilion, and more.
It should take a month or two to hear from Stanton. Then the detailed design and permitting will commence. We expect to start construction next Spring and open the park next summer.
Thank you Billerica!
The Billerica Dog Park will not be built by your tax dollars or town funds. All funds will come from the generous support of the community.
