Residents and visitors who frequent the City’s off-leash dog park will soon notice increased activity in the area. Contractors will be returning to complete spring landscaping and will be enhancing some of the current features of the park.
“We initially began the upgrades to the off-leash area in 2018 and look forward to adding more features to this park for the benefit of residents, visitors and their furry family members,” says Kathy Russell, Community Operations Lead for the City.
Work will begin on Thursday, April 25 and continue for three to four weeks depending on weather. The park will not be closed during the scheduled work, but the City will post signage to notify the public of any temporary pathway closures or safety advisories.
The project will include:
- Modifying a few berms, laying sod and seeding
- Installation of trees and native grasses
- Installation of split rail fencing along one pathway segment
- Finalization of secondary trails
- Addition of a shade sail at the pebble dog beach
- Addition of picnic tables and garbage cans
The City would also like to announce that over 300 goats will be visiting Chestermere again this spring and summer to munch through the weeds at the north end of the lake. Learn more at chestermere.ca/goats.
