Paw Park Ground Breaking Ceremony on Monday, April 4, 2016

Please join us for the City’s Paw Park Groundbreaking Ceremony on Monday, April 4 at 9AMat Paw Park, located between 17-92 and Laurel Avenue, on 5th Street, Sanford, Florida 32771. Paw Park has the distinction of being Central Florida’s first off leash dog park and has been one of the City’s most popular and well used parks. The site is part of the City’s original parks system, created in 1877.

The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity awarded a Technical Assistance Grant of $25,000 for the Master Plan design of Paw Park Village. Littlejohn Engineering Co. developed the master plan design for the village. Revitalization of Paw Park is the centerpiece of the Master Plan.

The total project cost is $226,735, which is being funded by a $70,000 County US 17-92 Community Redevelopment Agency grant, $100,000 from recreation impact fees, and the remainder from second generation tax revenues.

The park redesign features a relocated and expanded small dog area, gateway entrances, on-street parking, and landscape improvements. The park will be closed for approximately 4 months while the improvements are underway.
