Both of the dog playground areas are designated off-leash zones; however, park officials encourage all owners to consider safety first and ensure they have a lead with them at all times. While off-leash activity is welcomed in the play areas, dogs must be leashed when traveling to and from the enclosures as well as in all other areas.
Pelican Bark Park is a public dog play space, and entrance to the grounds is offered free of charge to all dogs and their owners. The park was made possible by the generous donations and hard work of a group of community volunteers with a passion to provide a safe space where dogs can enjoy regular off-leash exercise and opportunities for socialization.
Of particular note is Ethan Mayfield's contribution. Ethan built and donated the benches which line the dog park as a part of an Eagle Scout project. Donations are gratefully accepted and are earmarked for future improvements and ongoing park maintenance. Among the many on-site provisions are fountains which offer fresh drinking water, benches, a gazebo, swimming pools for dog use, and poop bags.
As a gesture of responsible dog ownership, all owners should clean up after their pets. Pelican Bark Park places a few expectations upon those enjoying their dog playground. Dogs must be current on vaccinations, licensed with their city, and bear identification tags on their collars.
Additionally, the park prohibits the following items: pinch, prong, or spike collars, food, glass containers, cigarettes, and alcohol. Professional dog training is not permitted on the grounds without the express permission of the Pelican Bark Park management team. Looking for a great new park to explore?
