Permits can be purchased M-F, from 10am-2pm at the Friends of City Park office across from Storyland..
THANK YOU VOLUNTEERS: Thank you to Lt. Joe Valiente of the NOPD and the Community Service Volunteers he brings. Through their efforts, the new sod has been watered well, the parking area across the street made free of weeds, and the pavilion, gazebo and entry area washed down at least 3 times a week. They have logged over 60 volunteer hours since he started working with them at the dog park.Special Permit Sale & Pick-up:
We will be selling dog park permits at the entry pavilion from 4:30-6:30 onSeptember 29 during the agility demonstration. Please tell any friends and relatives who are interested in joining. You may also pick-up previously purchased permits.
REGULAR PERMIT SALES:
If you mailed your application, your permit will be available the day after it is received between 9 & 5. Call 483-9377 to confirm. If you cannot pick it up, you can have it mailed for a $5 additional charge. If you are receiving Bark Bits, your permit is ready for pick up.
ADOPT ME: While you are at the dog park with your pet, you might notice handlers with dogs wearing "Adopt Me" vests. These are LASPCA foster dogs with their foster parents. Each of them fills the requirements set by NOLA City Bark for entry and their foster parents have swipe cards for admission. If you or someone you know is interested in adopting another dog, please talk with the dog's handler. Any adoptions between now and October 31 will help the LA-SPCA reach their goal in the $100K shelter adoption challenge.
On Wednesday, September 29, at 5:30PM, Cinda Walters and her award-winning Australian shepherds, Jake and Zeke will present an agility demonstration at NOLA City Bark. Cinda has been enjoying agility training and competitions for 8 years. Jake and Zeke have earned the top ranking of Excellent in agility; both also hold titles in sheep herding. Cinda will also bring her more recent rescue, Riley. Age 2 years, Riley has only been training for about 6 months. It will be interesting to compare the "rookie" to Cinda's 2 experienced competitors.
Thursday, September 30, is the rain date for this event.
PERMIT, PLEASE: We continue to receive complaints about non-permit holders lingering at the gate until they are admitted into the dog park by a permit holder. If you have a friend that does not hold a permit, but joins you for entrance, please discontinue this practice and ask your friend to purchase a permit for his own use of the dog park. If someone you do not know asks to be admitted, please tell the person that admission is by permit only.
We want to keep the dog park safe, fun, and affordable for all. Please respect the permit rule and understand that if you admit non-permit holders into the park, you are violating the contract that you signed and risk having your permit revoked and swipe card deactivated.
