Doggie Bark Park

Upcoming Events



Where Leash Laws Do NOT Apply!
Bark-LittleDog_3981-webWhile the city of Smithville has a leash law even in their public parks, our new Doggie Bark Park officially opened on May 1st with a ceremony and some waggin' tail fun.   This is a place where man's best friend can roam at will and socialize with other dogs their size from sunup to sundown.

Please follow all rules for the safety of the dogs and owners. For information, call 512-237-3282, ext. 7 (Rec Center, Parks & Recreation Dept.)
