The Bryant Bark Park officially opened to the public on October 14th, 2019 with a Leash Cutting Ceremony.
The Park has an area for dogs 25 pounds and over, as well as an area for dogs under 25 pounds.
Located at Alcoa 40 Park on Shobe Road.
Hours of Operation: Open 7 days a week from sunrise to sunset.
DURING THE WINTER MONTHS THERE WILL BE NO WATER AVAILABLE FROM THE DRINKING FOUNTAINS.
PLEASE BE SURE TO BRING WATER WITH YOU.
Dog Parks are areas designated 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!
By entering the Bark Park, users acknowledge and agree to comply with all the rules, regulations and ordinances pertaining to the Bark Park. To keep the Bark park safe for all to enjoy, please adhere to the following RULES:
- Dogs must be leashed when entering and exiting the park, and leashes must be quickly accessible while in the park.

- Small dog area is limited to dogs 25 pounds or less.
- Users bringing dogs under 25 pounds in the large dog area, do so at their own risk.
