Bark Park in Deep Ellum
2530 Commerce Street
Dallas, TX 75226
For the urbanite, Bark Park located in Deep Ellum offers an ample grassy play area. A newly upgraded area covered in mulch has been added to keep the muddy areas covered and clean. The park also includes an agility set for the more active pup to run through and play on. This is a great option for city dwellers without a backyard for dogs to run and have some outside activities. There is also a doggy vending machine with toys, and treats to indulge your furry friends.
Also included are separate “holding stations” to unleash your pets before letting them out onto each play area.
All three have clearly marked signs with rules for each park. These public parks are all intended for well-socialized dogs, and encourage their owners to keep an eye on your pet while interacting with others on the playground. With the weather getting warmer, it’s a great way to spend some quality time with your favorite pooch.
