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 Invitation

Dog Park Completion and Opening


Grand opening is planned for Saturday, June 1, 2019


So what's left to do?


Green Acres Landscape & Construction has stopped work for the winter, but still has a bit of work left.  They still need to plant the trees and tree guards, seeding, and add a top coat to the parking area.  This should be completed in April or May once the ground thaws.


During May, we're planning community projects to complete the park.  That work includes:

Building the shade pavilion.  Were still looking for an Eagle Scout candidate.

Building the information kiosk, setting the dog statue in place, paving the commemorative brick garden, and installing signage. AS&E / Rapiscan Systems Community Day of Service.

Landscaping. Billerica Garden Club.


Once this all completes, we are planning the Grand Opening on Saturday, June 1 2019. (Rain date June 8)


Construction Progress




Fundraising Continues

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.
