Toto's Bark Park
Toto's Bark Park was built in 2019 by a group of volunteers who wanted a place for their furry friends to run and play. Toto's Bark Park is located at 908 D Street, just south of the Emergency Services Building. The park features two fenced in areas, one for smaller animals and one for larger animals.
Benches provide a place for the humans to sit and watch their furbabies run and play.
Waste stations and receptacles are provided, and owners are required to clean up after their pets.
Rules for Toto's Bark Park may be viewed below.
