    My dog and I love Bark Park. Meg and her staff are always wonderful. My boy has been going there for over a year almost weekly and he has so much fun. My only complaint is that they don't do overnight boarding. Thank you Bark Park for loving my pup as much as we do.

    Alicia S had this to say in her 5-Star Yelp review,

    Amazing place to give your pup a wee bit of freedom! I also enjoyed the company of fellow dog owners I've mingled with there. A little background info, when my dog was a puppy he was attacked by another dog,so I'm always a bit nervous letting him run free around dogs I don't know. So far, the dogs inside this park have been so great, it seems like this is a "must like other dogs" kind of place and everyone respects that. I could see this fenced in area getting a little crowded in the summer though.

    River Oaks Dog Park is open year-round 7 am - Sunset.
