The City of Oakley announced that Koda Park, Oakley’s first designated off-leash dog park, is starting to take shape with the installation of sod, trees, shrubs that was done this past week. The park will open in late June.
The sod was delivered on Wednesday and crews worked rapidly to get the installation done in a single day. PG&E also completed the final electrical connection to provide power for the park. Minor concrete work and striping for the parking lot is scheduled for the end of May.
The shade structure for the picnic area is scheduled to arrive in early June. Once the plant material is established and following minor outstanding work to be done, the park is anticipated to open by the end of June.
The park is located next to the existing Nunn Wilson Family Park at the corner of Laurel Road and Brown Road. The park will encompass approximately 2.5 acres and includes a parking lot, restroom, picnic area, fenced areas for both small and large dogs, tables, benches, turf, drinking fountains, play and agility equipment and dog waste stations.
In total, the cost of the dog park is estimated around $1.2 million. Back in 2016, the City of Oakley received a $413,000 grant for a Community Dog Park. The city is contributing just over $764,000 in park impact fees.
