Heritage Park Lake Water Quality and Habitat Improvements Project

A project to improve water quality and habitat improvements for the lake began June 5. This project includes the excavation and mechanical dredging of sediments and native earthen materials within the lake and approximately 1,500 feet of stream to restore lake volume. The work will be phased to maintain irrigation water supply within the lake during construction activities. 

Please note: Beginning June 20, trails around the lake will be closed to public access for the duration of the project. 

Please be aware if you are buying permits with the intent of using them at Heritage Park, that lake will be closed to public use for the remainder of 2023 and most of 2024 due to the improvement project. Permits are valid for any JCPRD body of water where these activities are normally permitted.  


Effective June 30: The Heritage Trail entrance at the northeast corner of the park has been re-opened. A mowed trail detour provides a connection from the Heritage Trail to the marina parking lot. The walkway across the dam has also been re-opened to provide trail users a connection to the Coffee Creek Trail and other trails in the southern portion of the park. The dam sidewalk will be closed when work commences near the dam in 2024 or if other safety issues arise in the construction zone.

Effective June 20: Trails around the lake were closed to public access for the duration of the project.

Dog Off-Leash Area 

The 30-acre off-leash area includes a fenced open area, a small pond and a looped trail. The off-leash area is a maintained grass field with varied levels of terrain. There are also tall shade trees and a grassy play area. The looped trails system is a combination of both paved and hiking trails, with a portion of the trail being accessible.  
The off-leash area has two paved accessible parking spots near each of the three gated entrances into the off-leash area. The parking lot and restroom are located near the S Black Bob Road and West 161st entrance. The off-leash parking, gates, sidewalks, restrooms, and drinking fountains are ADA compliant.


Weekly maintenance is scheduled every Tuesday from 5 a.m. to 9 a.m. from March 1 - October 31 and 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. from November 1 - February 28. Closures are intended to allow for a higher level of maintenance to the area without compromising dog, patron, and staff safety.
