What do you get when you combine a Dog Park with a Beer Garden? BARK!
Bark Park is a revolutionary new concept in dog parks combining extensively themed play areas and dog care facilities with a casual, open-air brewery café. Situated on a one-acre footprint, the concept draws on the need to provide dog walking facilities, regular exercise, and recreation for pets and enhances the experience by featuring a social aspect that brings dogs, their owners and other dog lovers together.
Featuring casual dining, a full line of micro-brewed beers and a select wine list, Bark Park provides dog owners the ability to socialize and network with other dog owners while allowing their pets to enjoy a local green space which is essential to raising well-balanced pets. Park attendants patrol the play areas providing supervisory and sanitation support. In addition to the recreational and social aspect of Bark Park the concept also provides day care and long-term boarding facilities.
Participation is membership-based with owners having the ability to secure daily, monthly or annual memberships for their dogs. While dogs are allowed in limited areas of the café while on leash, the park provides many areas for dogs to roam off-leash while their owners relax with cocktails, a snack, or conversation at the Brewery Café.
Bark Park was conceived and designed to stimulate community participation and as such provides a valuable amenity to its hosting community at large. Year-round special events such as dog adoption fairs, vaccination drives and lost-and-found services can help to organize and monitor local dog populations.

The park is programmed with hills, waterways, climbing and play areas, pathways and an abundance of trees and greenery. Elevated planters protect the more delicate greenery and a specially designer irritations system keeps the grass (real and artificial) clean and free of odor.
The elevated terracing creates levels of green space, seating, waterfalls, and an overview out on the park. Outdoor seating is dog proofed and comfortable. Fireplaces are designed on the outer deck is cooler climates.
