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.

Dog Park Progress
November 1, 2018

It looks like this roller coaster ride may finally be pulling into the station. Construction is set to begin before the end of this year.

 

Green Acres Landscape & Construction Co. (www.greenacreslc.comsubmittied the winning bid of $192,930 to build the dog park.  The dog park construction is now in town hands.  A pre-construction meeting was held on October 24, 2018, and the Town of Billerica signed a contract with them to build the park.  

 

Donna Hansen at Recreation says "a groundbreaking ceremony is imminent”

 

The Friends of Billerica Dog Park turned over $18,884 (10%) to the town.  These are YOUR donations that made this possible.  The Stanton Foundation Grant (thestantonfoundation.org) has provided their $173,637 (90%) as well.


Per the contract with Green Acres, the final completion date will be May 31, 2019.  However, Green Acres plans to get started this fall and get as much as they can done before the weather stops them, then come back in the spring for plantings/loam & seed and hopefully only minor work.  There are also some additional work that we are planning to do as community projects.  That will likely not get organized until spring due to the cold weather.  It includes such work as the pavilion, the kiosk, some landscaping, etc.  

 

We’re looking at a late spring 2019 park opening.



Fundraising Continues...why?

We are continuing with fundraisers and events as we still need to pay the Town for ongoing operations and maintenance, currently estimated at $8,000 per year.  Keeping a dog park clean is not cheap, or, shall we say "pleasant".

Get your Swag on!
Check out the on-line store.  You can now get totes, hats and shirts.  Remember, we still need to ongoing funds to maintain the park after opening since the town will not fund it with town funds, so this is a great way to show everyone you support the park.

With the construction start eminent, we’ve now suspended new Commemorative Bricks so we can get them ordered and installed for opening.  If you reserved a brick, thank you again.  If you had not reserved a brick, we’ll be launching a program soon to add additional bricks to the park once it’s opened.  Stay tuned.



Join Us:  Come to a meeting and lend a paw. With your help, we can open the park sooner.
