A dog park like Bentonville AR Dog Park is a piece of land, usually in an urban area, set aside for people to take their dogs when they want them to run off-leash.

Why are dog parks so popular? The reason must be something deeper than simply giving dogs a place to run around–there are plenty of empty fields for that.

Then why are dog parks so popular? Bob Barker probably never thought his career-capping plea to raise money for animal spay and neuter programs would lead to the creation of thousands of public dog parks.

These parks are fenced areas where dogs can legally run off their leashes and play with other dogs. They exist in most major cities and can be found at the center of many suburban developments.

These parks are fenced areas where dogs can legally run off their leashes and play with other dogs. They exist in most major cities and can be found at the center of many suburban developments.

It seems hard to believe that such an obviously successful idea would have trouble getting started, but that’s precisely what happened when a group of Seattle dog lovers attempted to create the city’s first dog park in the late ‘80s. Residents opposed to it argued that it was a waste of money, a nuisance, and even a potential danger to children.

Opponents were so vocal and numerous that the park’s supporters were intimidated into canceling their plans.

Thankfully, however, the idea persevered, and most cities have allocated funds for building dog parks. Bentonville has committed to building a dog park in each quadrant of the city.

Listed below, you’ll find three of them that are in various stages of development.

Bentonville Bark Park is completely finished and open, Osage Bark Park is in phase 2 of development and is open but not finished yet, and Orchards Park Bark Park has just started construction in early 2022.

Bentonville Bark Park

2400 N Walton Blvd, Bentonville, AR 72712
(479) 464-7275

This is a wonderful off-leash place to take your four-legged friend. Your dog will love the opportunity to romp and play with other dogs of similar size, and you will enjoy the convenience of knowing that he or she has a space to safely play and socialize with other canine friends.

With easy access to I-49, the Bentonville Bark Park is right on a bike and walking trail between Bentonville and Bella Vista on Walton Blvd at the north end of town.

With separate fenced sections for large and small dogs, and an agility course, it’s a fantastic space for dogs and their owners to enjoy.

Promoting responsible dog ownership is key. Periodically throughout the year, events and programs are scheduled to help educate owners about the responsibility of owning a dog.

There are restrooms, parking spaces, water fountains, 6 benches, and a dog station.

Did we mention, the Bentonville Dog Park is a great place to meet people with similar interests as you?

Newly opened stage 2, has handsome wrought iron fencing and a dog station, Osage Dog Park has plenty of room for your pet to jump, run and play with other dogs that are also so inclined. They’ll easily make friends, and you will too. 

It also has a double entry feature and a dog station. Outside the dog park, in Osage Park proper, there is a beautiful meandering floating boardwalk where you can take your dog on a long scenic walk around the lake, and there are plenty of benches for when you’re ready to take a leisurely rest.

 

Orchards Dog Park 

Orchards Park
1100 NE John DeShields Blvd, Bentonville AR 72712

Located across from the entrance to Crystal Bridges, the children’s play area also features an adjacent dog park with fenced areas for small and large dogs, shade structures, rock outcroppings, trees, water stations and play options.

As you can see, building a Bentonville AR Bark Park in each major area of the city is of prime importance in the existing and future building plans of the city. Getting you and your furry-friend out in the fresh air and sunshine helps make for a healthy citizenry and happy dog.
