Moncus Park Dog Park


Best Friends Bark Park is an off-leash, permitted dog park. 

All dogs are welcome ANYWHERE in the Park as long as they remain on-leash per City Ordinance Sec. 10-121.​


We feel it is in your pup's best interest that a rotating schedule of days based on height be implemented until the Large Dog Run is completed in the coming months.

SMALL ( < 16 inches) : ODD DAYS (1st, 3rd, 5th, etc.) of the month
LARGE ( > 16 inches) : EVEN DAYS (2nd, 4th, 6th, etc.) of the month
