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.

Construction Continues
January 1, 2019


Dog Park Construction Continues

Construction is well past the halfway point, but will likely stop soon due to Winter conditions.  Construction will complete in the spring before the dog park can open.

After Green Acres Landscape & Construction completes the main construction, there is also some additional work planned as community projects to complete the park.  That work includes building the shade pavilion, building the information kiosk, Setting the dog statue in place, paving the commemorative brick garden, installing signage, adding landscaping.  This work is targeted for early June. 

We are still looking for someone (Eagle Scout candidate?) to take on the shade pavilion project.  Email us if you are interested in this project.

Grand opening is targeted for late spring 2019.

Construction Progress



Ground Breaking
On November 14, to celebrate the start of construction, The Billerica Recreation Department and the Dog Park Committee held a groundbreaking ceremony at the site of the new dog park.  You can read about it in the news here:

Lowell Sun: Dog park takes shape in Billerica



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".

How you can help...


The Billerica Dog Park will not be built by your tax dollars or town funds.  All funds will come from the generous support of the community. 

With your help, we are making the park a reality. The Friends of the Billerica Dog Park Committee is a 501(c)3 tax exempt organization. Donations and contributions are tax-deductible as allowed by law.

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.
