Construction is expected to start in April of a new $2.5 million dog park at Jupiter’s Cinquez Park.

Completion of the park at Center Street and Indiantown Road is planned by the end of the year

Plans for the first phase call for the dog park, shaded areas, picnic tables, lighting, walking trails, fencing, landscaping, bicycle racks and removal of non-native plants.

Separate dog park areas would be for large and small dogs. A dog-drink station is planned.

Future plans, which would require additional funding, call for a community garden, open grass fields, children’s playground and a treehouse.

Access to the park on 13 acres of town-owned property will be from Yancy Avenue and Carver Avenue.

The park will include a 2-acre wetlands area. About 80 parking spaces are planned.
