The Westland City Council has approved the bid for Professional Dog Park Construction Services in the amount not to exceed $245,500. The bid approved at the June 20 council meeting was awarded to Sole Building Company of Westland. The Department of Parks and Recreation is targeting the ground breaking of Westland’s first dog park in the summer of 2022 with completion expected later this year.
Funding for the proposed project will be provided through the Parks and Recreation Department Capital Improvement Budget for fiscal year 2022-2023.
The location is adjacent to the Westland Recycling Center (37137 Marquette) and will include a dog water station and perimeter fence to keep both dogs and residents safe. The off-leash dog park will also feature a half acre for small dogs and a full acre for large dogs to play. Both areas will have agility courses for dogs to play. There will benches throughout the park for visitors to relax.
Mayor William R. Wild stated “The All-American City looks forward to offering this great new amenity to the Westland residents and their special four-legged friends as well!"
The Westland Parks and Recreation Department will soon be announcing a contest to name the Park. All residents will be eligible.
