Edgewood Bark Park

History of the Park

 

The Greyhounds have been coming to the park for over 20 years. It was the desire of Edgewood Church to change the way it was being used to better serve the community. In 2018, it was decided that the field would be converted into a dog park. With the help of the Greyhound group, the Boy Scouts and church members the park was established. It is a work in progress so help is always welcomed.

 

In keeping with tradition the Greyhounds still meet weekly, and only the Greyhounds are allowed into the park during this time. In the spring after DST their time is Saturdays between 5:45 pm and 7:15pm and in the fall after the time changes their reserved time is 2:45 pm til 4:15pm. Please respect these times and plan your visit at another time.

  3. Children must be supervised by an adult at all times and should NOT approach any dog without permission from owner. Extra caution should be used if you bring small children in the park.

  4. Dogs must be current on shots (rabies/DHLPP).

  5. Please clean up poop and dispose of in the provided receptacle.

  6. Please keep your dog(s) leashed upon entering and exiting for their safety; and make sure both gates are closed properly.

  7. Owners must immediately leash dogs showing aggressive behavior towards people or other dogs.

  8. Food and drink are not allowed in the park. Water buckets and water are supplied on the grounds for dogs. No picnics/parties/glass bottles. When using water, make sure it is turned off when you are finished.

  9. No alcohol, vaping, drug usage or smoking is allowed on the property.

  11. Be respectful of how long you stay in the park. Limit your visit to 30—45 minutes.

  12. If you bring balls, toys, etc. be sure to take them back with you and dispose of damaged toys.

  13. The dog park is open from dawn to dusk most days. It is closed on Sunday mornings between 10 and 11 am for our church service which you are more than welcome to attend. Our service offers a relevant biblical message and modern live band. From time to time, the park may also be closed for other church events which you are welcome to attend. For your safety, the park is also closed when grass is being mowed.

 

Everyone is welcome but we do reserve the right to ban any individual (s) who choose(s) not to follow these guidelines.
