Bryant Bark Park Project
Bryant BARKwayBryant Barkway Off-Leash Trail is a 1/2 mile wooded trail located within the Alcoa 40 Park. The Barkway is part of the City of Bryant's commitment to providing a community-wide trail system. This portion of the trail system allows dogs to be off-leash within the boundaries of the Barkway, and for public safety, has some restricted use.
| The City of Bryant’s leaders think that dog parks are ‘paw’esome! Along with Bryant Animal Control and the Bryant Parks Department, the City of Bryant is raising funds to help build our own dog park. Our goal is to make the park a premier destination for dog lovers throughout Saline County and all of Central Arkansas. The plans for the dog park include separate areas for large and small dogs, dog washing stations, pet-height water fountains, a splashing pad, and lots of grass and shade for all sorts of safe, off-leash fun.
Plans to build the City of Bryant Dog Park, located within Alcoa Park at the corner of Shobe Road & Mills Park Road, have been underway since 2013. However, funding is short. The cost of the park includes parking lot improvements, sidewalks, wash/rinsing stations, separate play areas for large and small breed dogs, shades, grass, trees and a doggy splash pad for summertime fun is estimated at $400,000. Fundraising has included pet paintings, t-shirt and bandana sales, advertising sales, sponsorships and custom paver sales (aka Pawesome Pavers).
