About B.A.R.C - Akron Dog Park

 

   BARC (Better Akron Recreation for Canines) is a 501 c3 non-profit organization, staffed entirely by volunteers.  BARC operates and maintains the Akron Dog Park exclusively through charitable donations from visitors, the public and fundraising events.

 

   In 2004, Akron Dog Park was created as a safe space where canine owners could bring their dogs to exercise and socialize.  BARC opened Akron Dog Park with land and initial seed money provided by the City of Akron.  Currently, BARC continues to pay rent for the city owned land the dog park is on.

 

   The aim of BARC is to act as a resource for dog owners and to provide not only a safe and welcoming location to socialize, but also an educational experience.

   If you'd like to communicate with one or all of BARC's Board Members or Officers, please feel free to contact us.
