About the Park:
Central Bark Dog Park is a great place to let your dog off the leash! One affordable membership allows you access into both the large and small dog parks year round.
Trash receptacles and extra doggie bags are located in the park area for your convenience. Please be responsible when using the dog park by following the policies and procedures, including cleaning up after your dog.
The owner or other responsible person bringing any dog into the dog park must ensure the dog is wearing the dog license tag and dog park tag issued by the Village of Willow Springs.
We hope your dog enjoys running, playing and socializing with other dogs in Central Bark. Remember to be safe, obey the rules, and respect the park and others.
