Work is set to begin on a number of upgrades to the Cathy Lauritsen Memorial Off-Leash Dog Park in Regina.

The city said a number of projects will be undertaken at the site, west of Lewvan Drive and south of 13th Avenue.

The first project will start on Tuesday, May 12.

Here's what is planned:

  • Parking lot construction: Starts May 12 (approximately two weeks to complete).
  • Swale Construction: The low lying portions of the park will have work done to ensure the area drains properly (work will take place throughout the month of May).
  • Main Gate Construction: Work starts on June 1 (approximately one week to complete).

When the work on the main gate is underway, users will be able to enter the park using the east gate.

"Heavy equipment will be on-site and public are asked to be cautious with their dogs around the park," the city added.
