Cottleville’s Dog Park has grown with the addition of more ground to its boundaries inside Legacy Park, located off Hwy. N and just north of city hall and the police department.
City Administrator Russ Francis said the city approved a bill to pay Tri-County Fence & Deck $23,000 this summer to expand the boundaries of the park for both small dogs and puppies, and larger dogs by adding new fencing; a project that has been completed. About 1,000 feet of additional fencing was added.
The park, known as “Bark Park,” allows small and large dogs to run free inside separate fenced area through separate gates.
“It’s very popular; that’s why we had to expand it because it’s getting so much activity,” Francis said.
Rules for use of the park are posted at the entrance gate. Bark Park is closed when muddy conditions prohibit access. All rules and regulations are posted at the site.
