The electronic  gate will open at 6 am and close at 8 pm. In case of snow, the gate will be held until snowplowing is completed.

ROADS ARE NOW OPEN TO VEHICULAR TRAFFIC IN LOWELL PARK. If snow/ice or rain occur, roads may be closed. Please stay on hard surfaced roads as the grassy area are very soft. 

Lowell Park is open to non-motorized visitors from 5 am until 11 pm daily.

The Dixon Park District dog park has been the subject of much discussion recently: The park will remain by the soccer fields at the far north end of Washington Avenue. An electronic card reader will be installed; fences will be repaired and the road way will be improved but will not be a 365-day a year access. A new volunteer group met Tuesday March 6th at 6 pm at the park office, 804 Palmyra Street. WE WELCOME EVERYONE to help with the dog park. Call the park office for details.  Until the improvements are complete, you may use your 2017 registration as access. If you have not ever registered, please visit the park office and complete a registration form. Thanks!
