Concept plans for the North Lakes Dog Park were reviewed and approved by City Council and a ground-breaking ceremony was held in April 2019. Currently, irrigation system construction and ambient lighting installations are being completed.
The new 3.65-acre dog park will be located at North Lakes Park, near the Linda McNatt Animal Care and Adoption Center. The park will feature three separate play areas and a fourth small flexible area for play, agility, and/or dog obedience programs. Amenities being considered are based on community feedback and include shade structure(s), dog agility equipment, human and dog water fountains, waste stations, benches, and picnic tables.
The City broke ground at the North Lakes Dog Park site in April 2019. Currently, the irrigation system is being constructed, electrical is being installed for ambient lighting, and final bids are being considered for the park's fencing and concrete work. Construction is scheduled to completed by December 2019.
