Located at 11664 Dale Road, the city's off-leash dog park is named after the Police Department's first K9 officer, "Andy." Andy's Bark Park is approximately 70 acres. Although not completely fenced, the park includes mowed walking trails with benches, shelter area with picnic tables, pet watering station, pet waste disposal stations with bags, portable restroom (year-round), trash containers and kiosk.
Dog park maintenance taking place this Fall
Maintenance to the west water station and a few other minor areas will take place at Andy’s Bark Park beginning Sept. 27.
Park users and their pets should exercise extra caution near and around the work zone marked with fencing, moving vehicles hauling material and maintenance equipment. The east water station will be available for use. This project is scheduled to last approximately one week, weather depending. Once work is completed, users should stay out of the fenced area and off of the new grass.

Urban coyotes have been spotted at Andy's Bark Park. Coyotes are adapted to living in cities, suburbs and agricultural areas and when developments are built in and near their habitat, coyotes are not permanently displaced.
