Max and I both love NOLA City Bark. We visit 3 to 4 times a week and he loves getting to play with other dogs off leash while in the safety of the gated dog park.- Sam H.
An afternoon in City Park offers fun for the whole family, including the furry members of your family. NOLA City Bark is a 4.6-acre off-leash dog park with an event lawn, a one-quarter-mile walking trail, separate play areas for small and big dogs, and on-site restrooms.
Getting access to City Bark is easy: simply purchase a permit online or in-person at the City Park Administration Building between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday-Friday.
