Village Dog Park Construction Underway Soon!

After years of planning, fundraising, and designing, all of the pieces were put in place to begin construction of the Laura and Peter Mossakowski Family Dog Park in Bellevue.  The 29 acre site, located at 2282 Bellevue Street, will be the home to the multi use park with the dog park being the anchor and initial phase
of he site.  A combination of fundraising and contributed labor from the Dog Park Group, LLC along with a Village contribution from park impact fees for the shared construction cost of the parking lot and lighting will fund the improvements.

Phase 1 of the project will involve development of about 6-acres of the park, and include the construction of a parking lot, lighting, fencing, and landscaping.  Opening of the park will mainly depend on weather for the grass establishment.  As soon as everything is in place to safely open the park an announcement will be made.  Possibly late fall 2016, but most likely spring of 2017.  A ground breaking ceremony is being coordinated as of the writing of this article. Funding contributions for the park are still needed to complete full development.  For more information please visit the Laura & Peter Mossakowski Family Dog Park website.
