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.
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.
Annual Membership $120
