History


History of the Dog Park:
In August 2010, the Bellevue Park Commission
and Village Board approved a 5-year plan to
develop an off-leash dog park in our Village. The
Park Commssion then approved the creation
of an ad-hoc committee to guide a private
fundraising effort to develop the dog park. The
purpose of the Ad-Hoc Committee is to:

Raise private funds for the development and
ongoing maintenance of the off-leash dog
park in the Village of Bellevue.

Raise community awareness and build
community support for the dog park.

On January 28, 2014 a 501(c)(3) “Laura & Peter Mossakowski Family Dog Park”,charity was formed. To raise funds for the parks construction and maintenance. The charity is all volunteers, with the full support from the Village of Bellevue.

August 14, 2015 The charity hired Robert E. Lee & Associates, Inc./ Garret Perry of Design Studio ETC
To help us develop a Dog Park Master Plan.

November 9th, 2015 Master plan was approved by the Bellevue Park Commission.

December 9th, 2015 Master plan approved by the Village of Bellevue Board.
