NLR new dog park is now open!



NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – The city’s brand new dog park is now open.

Last week the Parks and Recreation department of North Little Rock had the community vote on what the name was going to be of the new park. “Barks and Rec” won in the polls. Barks and Rec is going to be located in Burns Park between the tennis courts and softball fields.

The dogs who have already used the park didn’t waste any time breaking it in.

Terry Harwick the North Little Rock Parks Director said “As you can see, it’s already being used. We did some things I think you’ll like. Fresher water, restrooms close by, more shady areas, places to sit down.”

This area ins’t prone to flooding, compared to the old location, which was severally impacted by the spring and summer floods.
