November 2, 2020:

While the open portion of the park was initially scheduled to change in Fall 2020, the larger area's grass remains inadequately established to withstand anticipated traffic.

The park's current set-up will remain until Fall 2021.

We will continue to give the new grass time to grow strong enough to survive many years of happy paws and now anticipate opening the larger area in late 2021. At that time, we will close the small area and begin rehabilitating and establishing its grass. We hope to open the full park in 2022.

Questions and Answers

Why is the opening delayed?
When the ground in the new dog park was seeded, the City identified an issue with viability of the vegetation and recommended that the area not be subject to excited paws until late 2021. Rather than delaying the project in its entirety, a small portion of the park is now open. We will open the currently closed area once the grass is adequately established (we estimate sometime in late 2021.) Once the larger area is open, we will close the small area and begin rehabilitating and establishing its grass. We hope to open the full park in 2022.
When will the full park open?
We plan to open the full park in 2022.
Can I still use the temporary area that was set up when construction began?
The area along Parker Street that was opened in 2016 (when construction began) is closed, and is no longer accessible.
I have an issue with the new temporary park. Who do I talk to?
Please contact 311 with any concerns.
