Per the approved Lilydale Regional Park master plan amendment, a dog park and related amenities will be built southwest of the DNR boat launch parking lot. The dog park will be approximately 8.5 acres, fully fenced, with a 3/4 acre area designated for small dogs similar to the High Bridge dog park.
Construction is anticipated to begin late summer 2021. The budget for the project is $416,700 from Metropolitan Council Legacy Amendment funds.
The dog park layout plan is complete. Access is planned from the Boat Launch parking lot and near the bike trail crossing at Lilydale Road/Water Street.
