The Barking Lot dog park is being reopened today (November 18) as a result of the City of Kingsport purchasing the property from the Downtown Kingsport Association.
“We are excited to bring the Barking Lot under the umbrella of the Parks and Recreation Department and are happy to partner with PEAK on special events and programming for the park,” said Assistant City Manager Michael Borders.
Located on Cherokee Street behind The Main Street Pizza Company, the Barking Lot provides an off-leash, fenced recreation area where dogs can run, play and socialize with other dogs. The park includes benches, doggie waste stations and a water fountain for dogs and their owners.
The Barking Lot does not have a membership requirement, and anyone can bring their dog to run and play with other dogs. All dogs using the park must wear a collar with current ID and rabies tag.For more information on this dog park and the others in town, please visit www.kingsportparksandrecreation.org.
