The Bark Park
The membership-based dog park is open 7 days per week from sunrise to sunset. Membership fees are based on a ‘per dog’ registration and are effective from January through December of each year. Membership for the 1st dog is $20.00 with $5.00 / dog thereafter with a maximum of three (3) dogs per household. Patrons are required to supply current vaccinations (rabies, bordetella, and DHPP) and registration information for their dogs in the application process. A secure keypad code lock is in place to provide security for the patrons. Members are provided with an initial code for entrance upon approval of membership. Codes change quarterly and a new code is provided (via text message or phone call from One Call Now) for access to the park.
THE Bark Park provides separate fenced areas for ‘small’ dogs and ‘large’ dogs. Each play area includes a pavilion with concrete flooring and picnic tables. The pavilions have electricity and running water included. There is additional bench seating located remotely from the pavilions, as well. There are three (3) play features in each compartment. They were constructed ‘in-house’ by Marion Park District Park Services personnel and are comprised of many re-purposed parts of outdated play equipment from other Marion Park District Parks. Each compartment has a ‘dogipot’ waste container for the disposal of pet waste. Baggies and a large waste receptacle are components of each ‘dogipot’.
