Centennial Dog Park
The Billings Parks, Recreation and Public Lands (PRPL) Department is working closely with our partners, Friends of Billings Dog Parks, to secure funds to develop the Centennial Dog Park. This park will be located in the south western part of Centennial Park. Below is a timeline of the project.
- In September of 2015, the Billings City Council approved a master plan for Centennial Park that included a new off-leash dog area. Although the master plan was approved at that time, funding for the park construction was not secured.
- In June of 2018, the City Council approved $2.46 million dollars for the first phase of development at Centennial Park. This phase will focus on park infrastructure which includes items like site grading, irrigation systems, utilities, parking and vegetation (grass & trees).
- In August of 2018, a consultant was selected to design the park and produce construction documents.
Construction on the first phase of this project is expected to begin in the spring on 2019. PRPL Staff, along with the Friends of the Billings Dog Parks, hope to include the Centennial Dog Park as part of this phase of construction. The exact cost of constructing the off-leash dog area is not know at this time. This site will be updated as the design process continues throughout the fall of 2018. However, additional dollars will be needed to fund enhancements to the Centennial Dog Park such as benches, drinking fountains, shade structures, and an agility area.
Please consider supporting this project and creating a place for you and your dogs to enjoy together.
