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.
The Race is On!
We appreciate your support, patience and excitement to us opening Billerica's first Dog Park.
With the very generous donation from the Billerica Community Fund Grant, funded by EMD Serono and Parexel, we have raised $22,000 for the park. We are halfway to our goal of $42,000.
The Town of Billerica Engineering and Conservation are assisting with the necessary state filings and permitting. We hope to have this completed soon so our corporate partner AS&E can help us begin some prep work at the site.
As always, we can't thank the Billerica Recreation Department enough for their support and partnership for this project.
We are currently finalizing an application with The Stanton Foundation. 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.
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.
We are closer than ever. However, we still need to raise a few more dollars.
As part of Billerica 2016 First Night celebrations, Justin Gordon of Elwin Designs carved a dog sculpture that will be used at the Dog Park entrance.
The sculpture is now on display waiting for her permanent home. Stop by and see her outside the Billerica Recreation Department, 248 Boston Road.
Her name? Stay tuned. We are looking into a contest to name her.
A great big thank you to Justin Gordon for the beautiful sculpture, and to Donna Hanson of Billerica Recreation for organizing it.
