Bark in the Park • Saturday, May 13, 2023 • 10:00 am-2:00 pm

Enjoy an afternoon with your furry, four-legged friend, at the Frederick County Parks and Recreation annual Bark in the Park. 

Your pooch will have an opportunity to run free in one of our off-leash areas, visit a variety of dog-friendly vendors, and make new friends. 
Bark in the Park also provides great opportunities for families to adopt a dog, sample dog-related products, and visit exhibit booths. 

All dogs who participate in Bark in the Park must have a current rabies vaccination, as required by law. Proof, in the form of a valid tag or certificate, must be available upon request. Dog owners must bring a collar and leash. Limit 2 dogs per owner.
