EPRD board considering new dog park proposal
Deb Hurley Brobst, Posted Wednesday, June 29, 2022 2:24 pm

Friends of Evergreen Dog Park has a plan to open an off-leash dog park in Evergreen, but it will take cooperation from Jeffco Open Space and the Evergreen Park & Recreation District to make it happen.

Betsy Rich and Dale Glover with FEDP presented their proposal at an EPRD board meeting on June 28, saying they have found a 36-acre parcel next to Fillius Park near the Evergreen King Soopers. They say with financial backing from Jeffco Open Space, EPRD operating the park and FEDP volunteers helping with dog-park maintenance and more, the venture could be successful.

The board voted unanimously to continue exploring the idea, noting that researching the feasibility of the dog park and operating it would take considerable staff time and effort before the EPRD board would decide whether to move forward. The board appointed board President Don Rosenthal and board member Mary McGhee to serve on a subcommittee looking at the dog-park potential.

FEDP hopes EPRD will purchase the property and operate the dog park. Jeffco Open Space has offered up to $1 million to EPRD to purchase the property and up to $200,000 for construction costs.

After closure 5 years prior, Evergreen shares plans for new off-leash dog park
By: Pattrik Perez, Posted at 9:50 PM, Sep 01, 2022

Evergreen Parks and Recreation Department staff shared plans for a new off-leash dog park on Thursday afternoon. It would be located right off of SH 74, just east of Fillius Park, about five minutes from the old park. The location, which stands on 36 acres, is currently private property.

There is a lot of work ahead to make the park a reality, including multiple zoning and community meetings. If all goes according to plan, town staff hope to have it open by summer 2023 at the earliest.
