Large Dog Park, Green Space, and Ball Courts Coming to Filippello Park
Filippello Park – A 35-year-old vision is becoming a reality at Filippello Park. In past years, people driving or walking down Grove St. would see an empty lot with plenty of space and potential. In three short weeks, the Watertown community will be able to enjoy a newly renovated Filippello Park.
The new park will include new green space, gazebos, and athletic courts (including new basketball, futsal, and pickleball courts). Although the park will be open soon, these courts will not be striped until the spring.
Perhaps the largest addition? A 27,000 square-foot linear dog park. The new canine play area will have two separate sections for small dog breed and large dog breeds. The surface of the park is rice stone which is ideal for dogs to walk on. The majority of the park is already built and will be open for use by the pubic in mid-December.
