HOT OFF THE PRESS: See Initial Plans For New Town Dog Park

WILMINGTON, MA — Town Manager Jeff Hull announced his intentions to create a Town Dog Park during his FY17 budget presentation on Monday, February 1.  Less than two weeks later, Town Hall is already making good on its promise.

On Friday, the town released the invitation to bid on the installation of approximately 600 feet of chainlink fence and gates at the Town Dog Park, located at Town Park (823 Main Street).  Bids are due to Town Hall  by Thursday, March 3 at 10am.  The bid package – which includes detailed specs – can be read HERE.

The bid package reveals that the Town Dog Park’s fence and gates will be installed no later than June 1, which suggests the park will be ready for use in the late spring or early summer.

While the installation for fencing was put out to bid, the Town’s Department of Public Works will be handling the necessary clearing of any lands and trees for the project.

The bid documents also include an initial site plan for the Town Dog Park, which indicates there will be an enclosed area (13,597 square feet) for all dogs AND a smaller enclosed area (6,658 square feet) for small dogs.  The plan also calls for multiple park benches and signage for the park’s rules.

The site plan can be seen below.  A clear/larger image of the plans can be found in the bid package on page 16.
