The Barking Lot is a public space for dogs to exercise, socialize, and have fun under the supervision of their humans. The rules and guidelines below help prevent dogfights and help keep our dogs healthy and safe when visiting the dog park. Please help enforce park rules and guidelines by politely pointing out inappropriate behavior without provoking an altercation.
