MV Bark Park



Sign up your dog for access to the new MV Bark Park, a fenced-in area designed for off-leash activities. Inside the park, there is a "small dog" area and a "big dog" area to keep the dogs as safe as possible. 

The MV Bark Park is located at Brittlebank Park, just south of Brittlebank Pool. (It's the large white fence, you can't miss it!) This is a membership-based service: in order to protect the safety of all involved, those interested will need to register with the Park Department prior to using the park.

The registration process includes reading and signing off on the rules, providing you and your dogs info, signing a waiver, and providing the most recent shot records for your dog. The annual fee is $10 for the first dog, $5 for every additional dog up to four total dogs. The registration will be processed and you will be sent the key code, via email, to gain access to the park.

The MV Bark Park will be open dawn to dusk everyday. Renewal of your annual feel will be required in January of each year.

Please Note: use of the park is at your own risk, there will not be an attendant on duty. To keep the park safe and usable please report any issues or incidents to the Parks Office at 812-838-3691.




Park Entry Procedure

The MV Bark Park would not have been possible without point person Georgia Benton and the Bark Park Committee, who worked tirelessly to make all of this happen, as well as all of our great grassroots sponsors. In addition, we would like to thank Westech Business Products and Mr. Fence for the discounted fencing and services, without which the park could have never been constructed. See all of our grassroots sponsors below. Thank you!
