What is the Laura & Peter Mossakowski Family Dog Park?
A place where our best friends have a place to run, roll around in mud, meet new four-legged friends and even catch a ball or a Frisbee.
A group of dedicated volunteer citizens are working to create and operate a community dog park in the Village of Bellevue. Fundraising has been on-going since 2011 for the project. The park is currently scheduled to possibly open in the fall of 2016 or spring of 2017. Through a very generous donation from Laura and Peter Mossakowski, the Bellevue Dog Park has been named in their honor.
A non-profit charity has been created to raise funds for the initial park development, further build-out of facilities and amenities and maintenance. Visit the Bellevue Dog Park webpage for the latest details and how to donate. Donations will be needed for many years, even after the park is initially opened to complete implementation of the full master park plan.
Where is the Proposed Dog Park?
The proposed site is located at 2282 Bellevue Street. This 22.5 acre park site is located just south of State HWY 172 along the banks of the East River. The majority of this park is part of the East River Parkway & Trail. An approximate 6.5 acre section of the property will be developed as a dog park. The Village owns this property and has approved its use as a dog park for our community.
What will the Dog Park Look Like?
In 2015, the Dog Park non-profit group funded the development of a master park plan for the dog park. The Bellevue Village Board approved the plan in December, 2015. The plan details the key features, amenities and layout of the full park site. Full implementation of the plan is expected to take up to 10-20 years depending on funding, but is essential to the development of the first most basic phases of the park.
Donate $$$ Today!
To develop an off-leash dog park in Bellevue, we are seeking to raise the funds privately. The goal is to raise approximately $130,000 to get the basic features of the park open. A fully developed site will include a fenced off-leash dog area, pavilion, playground, trails and off-street parking. In order to construct this facility we need you help! Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to the project.
