In 2003, Wayside was thrilled to open the new Wayside Waifs Bark Park, given and dedicated by the Harold and Marilyn Melcher family. And what a great park it is for an off-leash romp with your canine friends! We hope you and your dog find the park to be a great outlet for fun, socialization and bonding. Our goal is to create the safest dog park in the metropolitan area.
The Courtesy Comfort Station - a one-of-a-kind amenity added to the Bark Park 2016 - was funded 100% by The Harold and Marilyn Melcher Foundation. The vision for the Courtesy Comfort Station was to create a unique, friendly and comfortable space for Bark Park patrons as well as Wayside Waifs volunteers to walk and social dogs on campus. Take a 360 tour of the Courtesy Comfort Station.
The Bark Park is open for members only and requires a card for entry. This further guarantees the security of the Bark Park, and all proceeds go to support Wayside’s shelter operations.
