A 64-acre tract of land in New Caney will be transformed into a dog park with nature trails, according to a May 5 news release from the East Montgomery County Improvement District.

Located on FM 1485 at the intersection of Gene Campbell Boulevard in New Caney, this area has been under contract since December, and the EMCID hopes to close on the tract “this month,” according to the news release. The land touches parts of both Dry Creek and Caney Creek.

“We’ve heard from residents for years how they’d like for park space to be added into the East Montgomery landscape, and we believe this former crushed concrete site can be transformed into a beautiful green space,” said Frank McCrady, EMCID president and CEO, via the news release.

The project is still in the planning and development phase, according to the EMCID, and a timeline for the project has not yet been announced. Eventually, the park is expected to include biking and walking trails as well as gardens to host wildlife.
