Our wildly paw-pular Bark in the Park events are back for the 2023 season!
When purchasing, please select a seat in the "Outfield Reserved" section. When selecting tickets, please make sure to use the section tab. For Bark in the Park dates, dog owners must purchase a separate ticket for their canines. Included in the cost of a dog ticket is a donation to our friends at Second Chance Pet Adoptions.

To ensure all attendees have a fun and safe experience at Bark in the Park events, please read and adhere to the following information:
- All dogs require a Bark in the Park Dog ticket.

- We will have plenty of volunteers, courtesy of Second Chance Pet Adoptions, who will be more than happy to sit with your dog should you need to briefly leave these areas.
- All dogs must be current on their vaccinations.
- Dog owner assumes responsibility for the action of their dog for the duration of the Bark in the Park event.
- All dogs must be kept on fixed length leashes (no longer than 8 ft.) at all times. No retractable leashes, no dogs off leash.
- These games will be busy and the weather might be warm. Please ensure your dog is comfortable in these conditions before planning to attend the event.
