here 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 Underway for YOUR Dog Park
December 1, 2018

Green Acres Landscape & Construction Co. (www.greenacreslc.com) is the contractor building the majority of the park.  They are already well underway with construction.

Derek E. Doyle, Civil Engineer, DPW Engineering with the Town of Billerica is managing the project.  Derek reports the contractor s installed erosion controls, laid out and cleared the site, installed the water meter vault and underground water lines.  They continue to strip the site to subgrade.  For areas that are now at subgrade, they are installing the base and some of dense grade (top material) for the parking area on top of that base.  Construction continues as long as the weather allows, then come back in the spring for plantings/loam & seed and hopefully only minor completion work.  They are anticipating completion by May 31, 2019

After Green Acres finishes, there is also some additional work planned as community projects to complete the park.  That includes such work as building the shade pavilion and info kiosk, installing the commemorative brick garden, and some landscaping.  This work is targeted for early June.  

We’re still targeting a late spring 2019 opening.

Check out more progress photos on the "Construction Progress" page.


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 here:

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.
