The Bentonville Bark Park is an off-leash recreation area for dogs and dog
lovers, just west of the North Bentonville Trail. The primary purpose is
to provide exercise and socialization opportunities for our four-legged friends
while promoting responsible dog ownership through events and programs.
Bark Park began as a Girl Scout Gold Award project for Melissa Schube and turned
into a community-wide effort to raise money to build Bentonville's first dog
park. Nearly $150,000 in donations was raised. A huge Thank You goes
