Dog Park

A unique members-only dog park for you and your pup to enjoy together!

Off-Leash Play with Your Canine Companion

Located on the grounds of Zionsville Country Kennel, The Bark Park is the region’s first private off-leash dog park. Dogs are assessed prior to membership approval for sociability and other factors to ensure all guests have a safe, fun visit. The Park features a fully fenced seven-acre space where you and your canine companion can enjoy off-leash play. It’s a great place for dogs to run and play and provides plenty of opportunities for them to socialize with people and other dogs. You just might make a new friend when visiting The Bark Park, too!

About The Bark Park

The Bark Park is open daily from sunrise to sunset and is divided into three separate play areas. One area is for large, energetic dogs, and one is intended for smaller dogs who may be a bit shy or feel intimidated by larger, more rambunctious dogs. Small dogs are allowed in the large dog area, but large dogs are not allowed in the small dog area. In the third area, you’ll find a lake with a dock for diving and swimming.

The Park Pass

To visit The Bark Park, your dog must have a Park Pass. This card must be carried by the dog’s owner and remain visible at all times. This allows Park staff to quickly identify dogs who are allowed to use the facility. Your dog must complete an assessment before you can purchase a Park Pass.

Passes are valid for one year from the purchase date, and they are non-refundable. We offer a 30% discount on memberships for additional dogs in the same family. All dogs must pass our assessment before we will issue them a Park Pass.

  • Dogs who have shown aggressive, fierce, vicious, or dangerous behavior are not permitted in The Bark Park.
  • No more than three dogs per person are permitted.
  • All dogs must exhibit prompt recall skills.
  • If you, your dog, or anyone visiting The Bark Park with you creates a disturbance or violates the posted roles, you will be asked to leave by an agent or employee of Zionsville Country Kennel. By using The Bark Park, you agree to leave immediately if requested to do so.
  • You may not smoke or eat inside The Bark Park.
  • Dogs may not be left unattended at any time.
  • Your dog must be under voice control at all times.
  • All dogs must be spayed/neutered to attend the dog park.


In addition to following the rules, we expect you to practice good etiquette when visiting The Bark Park to ensure a fun and safe environment for everyone.

  • Clean up after your dog. All waste must be picked up and disposed of properly. Bags and waste receptacles are available inside The Bark Park for this reason.
  • Glass containers are not permitted in The Park Bark.
  • Agility equipment can only be used by dogs. Children and adults are not permitted to sit or climb on agility equipment or use it for anything other than its intended purpose.

  • You must leash your dog and exit The Bark Park immediately if they show aggression toward other dogs or people or if they become unruly.
  • We encourage you to not bring your dog’s favorite toy to the park. Since dogs tend to be protective of their toys, bringing them into an environment where other dogs are present could result in aggression.
  • Ensure that all gates are closed and check all entrances before unleashing your dog.

Additional Recommendations

  • Your dog should be on a year-round heartworm preventative before visiting The Bark Park.
  • There are no water fountains on-site, so please bring drinking water for your canine companion.
