Robert E. Lee & Associates teamed with Design Studio Etc. to develop the Master Plan for a 23-acre park located in the Village of Bellevue. Vanden Heuvel Park is located on the south side of STH 172 and west side of CTH XX (Bellevue Street). The Village is granting a non-profit group (Laura and Peter Mossakowski Dog Park LTD) a “T-shaped” portion of the park encompassing about 6.5 acres for the construction of a dog park.
The dog park area includes a driveway and parking area, large dog play area, small dog play area, and a children’s play area. The dog play areas feature lawn areas outlined by native grasses, dog agility features, water splash pad, central gathering area, shade structures, trees, and landscaping. The children’s play area and dog agility area will feature natural elements such as rocks and logs. The plans also include amenities such as signage, dog refuse containers, picnic tables, and benches.
In addition to the dog park, the Master Plan includes a trailhead facility, recreational/hiking trails, kayak launch, wetland boardwalk, and a pedestrian bridge over the East River to connect to the Village of Allouez.
