- Berkeley Park: The “Lake End” improvement for the Berkeley Lake is under way. Because of this project, the existing Berkeley dog park needed to be moved to make room for a staging area. The temporarily dog park location/structure will remain as is until summer 2012. The Lake End project (which will extend the lake to create a marsh land) will be complete in June/July 2012. At the completion of the Lake End project in Summer 2012, the Berkeley dog park remodel/improvement will begin and new location will be south of the old location but will square foot will remain approx. 1 acre as it had been. As for the water fountain, unfortunately, due to new Denver Water regulations, the water source is too far away from the fountain, so it will remain off permanently. P&R hopes to have the funds to put in a new water fountain in the remodeled dog park next summer.
- Fuller and Kennedy Dog Park Temporarily Closed: Fuller and Kennedy dog park are temporarily closed from September to November (complete date pending weather) to complete planned renovations! The park will be getting new surface material, adding landscaping, benches, separated small and large dog areas, and a shade structure!
- Berkeley Park, Fuller Park and Kennedy Park Shade Structure!: P&R hopes to be able to put one shade structure in each location during this remodel phase. They are very expensive so keep your fingers crossed! They have completed the landscaping so that additional shade structures can be added it the future.
