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.


Grand Opening.
Saturday June 1st
Noon.


Join us on Saturday June 1 for the opening ceremony. In case of inclement weather, the opening ceremony will be held June 8 and announced on Facebook & Twitter the day before.  

The park will open with a ribbon cutting starting at noon.

Download this flyer.

We'll also have information about the park, and some great swag giveaway items too.

Of course, bring your dog!  This opening is especially for them.

Remember the Billerica Dog Park rules to keep everyone happy and safe.  Among them, children under 8 years not allowed, 8-15 years must be accompanied by an adult. Not Allowed: Human food, dog food and dog treats.

Dog Park Completion

Green Acres Landscape & Construction has reached substantial completion this past week.   The Town is now creating a “Punch list” of items to finish/correct. Grass has been planted, but needs some time to take hold.

Grand opening is only four weeks away on Saturday June 1.  See below for more information on the official opening ceremony.

Some amenities and finishing touches will be delayed until after opening.  We will have to shut down a few days here and there for that work.
  • The commemorative brick garden, tree/bench sponsor bricks, information kiosk, and dog statue will be completed in June by AS&E / Rapiscan Systems Community Day of Service.
  • Landscaping. Billerica Garden Club.
  • The shade pavilion will come later.  Any Eagle Scout candidates want to take on this project?  We hope to complete this by year's end.

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.
