Michael J. Tully Dog Park

Project Location: New Hyde Park, NY
Client: Town of North Hempstead

The Town of North Hempstead requested Design Services for the construction of a dog park at Michael J. Tully Park located on Evergreen Avenue in New Hyde Park. The Town dog park includes a double gated entrance, a 6 ft high fence, plumbing for water fountains and yard hydrants, shade area, park benches, waste can/receptacles, ability to isolate large and small breeds, a bulletin board, and multiple entries and exits.

N+P investigated two (2) potential areas for the dog park and made a recommendation to the Town.  Upon their approval, N&P did an extensive investigation of artificial turf products due to their longevity, low maintenance, and aesthetics.  In addition to the Town’s requirements, it was recommended to include aesthetic landscaping, a 14’ by 22’ shade shelter, trees to remain, and dog obstacles such as “tunnels”, “jumps”, and “tables”.

Once a selected alternative was chosen N+P proceeded with final design which included; site survey, base mapping, and existing conditions evaluation; preliminary construction cost estimates and schedules; coordination with public and private utilities; preparation of Final Plans, Specifications, and Estimate for construction of the proposed dog park; Bid review and recommendation of Award; and general construction support services.
