Enjoy a fantastic afternoon with your furry, four-legged friend, at the Frederick County Parks and Recreation annual Bark in the Park. Your pooch will have an opportunity to run free in one of our off-leash areas, test and sharpen his or her skills on the agility course, participate in doggie contests, and make new friends. Bark in the Park also provides great opportunities for families to adopt a dog, learn different training techniques, sample dog-related products, and visit exhibit booths. 

There will be a live demonstration by the Canine Obedience Unlimited. This event is sure to be a dog-gone good time! Beat the rush by pre-registering now or you can register on site the day of the event. 

Dogs who participate in the Tails on Trails series will receive FREE admission to Bark in the Park.

Dog owners must bring a collar, leash, and proof of rabies vaccination for entry. Limit 2 dogs per owner.
