Welcome

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

Countdown to Opening


We have now received approval from the Billerica Conservation Commission! We have been diligently working toward this day since our first informal discussion with them on March 8.

We are now preparing to present to the Board of Health (BOH) on July 10th for their approval.

The process has cost us an additional unplanned $5,000 for the Peer Review and engineering charges.  Our anticipated completion date for the park is now this Fall, but still 2017!.  We'll have a better idea of opening date when we complete the BOH review, and Grant review.  After a few more reviews and approvals, we will be going out to bid to build your park.  

Stay tuned.


Community Service

Once the contractor completes the main construction project, we still have some finishing touches to complete for opening.  In a true community project spirit, local Billerica businesses, groups and individuals have come forward and will be working on the final park perks!
  • Bringing water from the street to the park (not funded by our grant).
  • Setting up the bag/waste dispensers and dumpster.
  • Installing  most of the signage, such as the park rules, entrances, clean-up reminders, Wetlands signs.
  • install the Commemorative Brick garden.
  • Seal and move the dog statue.
  • Build the information kiosk and shade pavilion.
  • Provide and install the plantings at mulched beds.
  • Thin or Clear "Natural Area".

A Billerica contractor has offered to provide the labor to bring water to the site.  We just need to supply the materials.  An Eagle Scout is planning to build the Pavilion.  AS&E has signed up for many of the other items as part of a "Community Day of Service.


AS&E Donation & Partnership

AS&E continues its partnership with the Billerica Dog Park. As part of their sponsorship, AS&E presented a donation of $5,000 at our April meeting, which will help fund the Phase III construction work. In addition, employees will come out in force for a community day of service to complete the final work for opening day. The Dog Park committee extends a huge thank you to AS&E, which has supported other Billerica projects over the years including renovations at Micozzi Beach, the dog pound, and the Kids Konnection playground.
 
AS&E was acquired last year by OSI Systems and joins sister organization, Rapiscan, as part of the OSI Systems family of security companies, providing advanced X-ray technologies to help secure ports, borders, military, high-threat facilities, and critical infrastructure all over the world. www.as-e.com
