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

September 1, 2017.  As we inch closer to fall, we are getting close to starting construction for the dog park.  We are making progress, but slower than we thought we would a year ago.

We met with Conservation Commission several times since April, and received their approval on June 28. We also meet with Board of Health, and received their approval July 10.

We are now deep in review with good folks who are funding 90% of the construction costs.  There are some additional comments, questions and changes from them, but nothing major.  Once they give us the OK, we go out to bid to do the work.

We still don't have a definitive timeline for the park opening, since Recreation is still sorting out the town bid process, and the contractor will be integral in setting a start/end construction date.  But, we still anticipate opening in 2017.  It may be just before the first snowfall, but still 2017.

Your long wait is nearing an end.  We greatly appreciate your support, patience, and can't wait to open your dog park.

Stay tuned.
