THE BARK PARK IS OPEN FOR USE!!
The Beech Mountain Bark Park is a fenced in, off-leash dog park where well-behaved dogs can exercise in a clean, safe environment without endangering or annoying people, property or wildlife. This park is a beautiful, well-maintained space open to all dog lovers and friends who are willing to uphold the park’s rules and restrictions. The park was built and is maintained as a community project, designed to satisfy the needs of dog-owners and non-dog owners alike.
