Murfreesboro Bark Park
The Murfreesboro Bark Park, located off West College Street near the General Bragg Trailhead, is the social center for Murfreesboro's favorite canine citizens. Featuring separate areas for large and small breeds, the dog park gives dogs a safe place to run and play. Water is available during the warm weather season.
Hours of Operation: Seven days a week, the Bark Park opens at sunrise and closes a half hour prior to sunset.
Large, fenced in area for dogs to gather and be social! There are two separate areas: one for small dogs and one for large dogs. We have been there a couple times now and have enjoyed our time. As with any park kind of area, you'll get a mixed bag of people. However, most of the people we have met there have been super friendly. The park supplies bows (and a fountain to fill them) and poop bags for the dogs, and picnic tables for the people (some covered). Its unfortunate that some people don't utilize the provided bags. Walking through the area is like walking through a mine field, but what do you expect when dogs gather and play all day? There is little oversight by any "officials"; so the park is pretty regulated by the people using it. So, it's up to the owners to be able to either control their dog, or restrain them when something does happen. Not saying this is a bad thing, because having to station someone there would probably mean the park wouldn't be free to use anymore. Overall, a great place to take your dog, and we will continue to take ours there!
Love it here. Wish people better trained their pups not to jump on people and cleaned the poo after their dogs but other than that perfect to let your baby socialize and run and play and fresh water and toys all over the place 🐶
The dogs had a great time! It was not a planned trip so I was grateful there was a water fountain for them. A couple of enclosed areas that they could run and play. Will definitely be coming back!
An excellent place to let your dog run free and play. Lots of enclosed space, tons of friendly dog owners that are respectful and not far away a running river to cool your pet down in. Beautiful park, plenty of supplies to pick up after your pet and dispose of it. A great place to build your relationship and exercise routine with your pet.
People and there dogs are mostly friendly. Pretty clean for a dog park and has a smaller area for small dogs or troulbe dogs if no one else is in there
