Bryant Dog Park
City of Bryant Dog Park (Coming Soon!)
Dog Parks are areas specifically set aside for dogs to exercise and play off-leash in a controlled environment under the supervision of their human family. These large, fenced-in parks provide regular socialization for dogs both with other dogs and new people, teach isolated dogs (those living in 1-dog households) valuable communication skills, and allow canines to run off some of that excess pent-up energy that would normally be expressed doing the “job” their specific breed was intended to do!
All of these things make for better behaved dogs, decrease the likelihood of dog-to-dog aggression, as well as reduce dog bites, which makes for a safer community.
| The City of Bryant’s leaders think that dog parks are ‘paw’esome! So, the City of Bryant, along with Bryant Animal Control and the Bryant Parks Department, is raising funds to help build our own dog park. Our goal is to make the park a premier destination for dog lovers throughout Saline County and all of Central Arkansas. The plans for the dog park include: separate areas for large and small dogs, dog washing stations, pet-height water fountains, a splashing pad, and lots of grass and shade for all sorts of safe, off-leash fun.
Plans to build the City of Bryant Dog Park, located within Alcoa Park, which is at the corner of Shobe Road & Mills Park Road, have been underway since 2013, but funding is short. The cost of the park includes parking lot improvements, sidewalks, wash/rinsing stations, separate play areas for large and small breed dogs, shades, grass, trees and a doggy splash pad for summertime fun is estimated at $400,000. Fundraising has included pet paintings, t-shirt and bandana sales, advertising sales, sponsorships and custom paver sales (aka Pawesome Pavers.)
