Dog Park Construction Project Begins Friday, December 15

Date of Release: 
December 14, 2023

Crews with Evrard Company and Central Paving will begin mobilizing equipment on Friday, December 15, for the Dog Park Relocation Project at Bob Noble Park. During construction, access into the area adjacent to the Anna Baumer Building and Shelter 17 behind the amphitheater will be limited to construction crews and city staff. Park visitors who wish to access the Peck Education Trail will need to use the trail entrance off Noble Park Trace which is near the Cairo Road entrance into Noble Park.

The dog parks are expected to open to the public in February. This project also includes roadway improvements into that section of Noble Park. The final roadway surface will be placed in the spring after the asphalt plants reopen.

In November, the Paducah Board of Commissioners approved a contract with Evrard Company for the project to relocate the current dog parks at Stuart Nelson Park to Noble Park since construction will start in 2024 on the Paducah Sports Park which will use a portion of Stuart Nelson Park. The dog parks at Noble Park will open before the current dog parks at Stuart Nelson Park close for Sports Park construction.

The dog park area at Noble Park, which is similar in size to the current dog parks, has natural shade and open running space for dogs. Plus, it is secluded from Lake Montgomery and associated waterfowl. In addition to the dog parks, this project will include roadway improvements, paved parking areas, and pedestal water fountains.

McCracken County is funding a portion of the dog park relocation project based upon the interlocal agreement approved in 2022.
