One of the best dog parks I've been to. A lot of work has gone into making it and it clearly shows, this is an essential part of the dog owner community in Hyde Park. Would recommend 5/5.

Jackson Bark is a community dog park. There are no entrance fees. To find the free parking lot, use GoogleMaps.

Response from Todd A | Property representative |
'Science Drive' is the entrance road. If you go to GoogleMaps and search 'Jackson Bark' you'll see it's just SE of the Museum of Science and Industry and North of Jackson Bark.

We're a community dog park open to the public. All well behaved pups who are current on their vaccinations are welcome to attend.
