iousThere 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.

Dog Park Redesigned

Last fall 2017, we hit a snag with the park.  The grant folks asked us to make some changes to our design based on their experience with other parks.  We are currently redesigning the park, and are working to make those changes.  Once ready, we make another round of approvals with the Town and the grant folks before we can then proceed to bid out the work, award a contractor, gain permits, and start construction.  We wish we had a timeline for opening, but considering the challenges so far, we just can't say when this year it will be.

All told, it has been a winter of extra costs, and more time to regroup.  Hang in there.  We are making progress, but not at the speed that we, or you, expect on this project.

For the landscape engineer in you, these are the details of The design changes.  The biggest one has been to "flatten" the site so that there are no steep areas.  We have reduced the overall size of the park to eliminated the natural wooded hill area, regraded areas, and incorporated a retaining wall where We needed to.  We also added an irrigation system to be able to spray down the park.  Other changes include adding edging to walkways and parking area, more accessible benches, and protection to keep the trees healthy.
