Unity Dog Park Set to Open This Spring

Unity Dog Park

Unity Park will soon be home to a dog park. Unity Dog Park is set to open mid-April, weather permitting.  The park, located on the northeast portion of Unity Park, will feature two separate fenced areas – one for small dogs and one for large dogs. Stay tuned for opening details.

Highland Village dog owners had been using a fenced area behind McAuliffe Elementary School as an off-leash area for dogs. When the Lewisville Independent School District closed the area, users of the spot came to the City to fill the need. Council directed city staff to look at all park properties and present options to build a City dog park. Upon the completion of Doubletree Ranch Park, soccer fields on the north east side of Unity Park were moved to Doubletree Ranch Park. City staff proposed using this 1.5 acre area to construct a dog park.  The funding for the park came from the Park Development Fee and Service Area IV and the remaining from the General Fund. City crews installed the irrigation system, benches and flag poles which provided a cost savings. Opportunities for a donation or sponsorship are available for the purchase of benches and cedar shade structures.
