Where a Dog Can Be a Dog

The City’s first off-leash dog park was officially opened on Jan. 21, 2012. The park, an excellent example of a partnership between the City of Bartlesville and a group of civic-minded residents, provides over 2.5 acres “where a dog can be a dog”.  Located at 2400 SE Adams Boulevard, there are two separate areas, one for the small dogs and one for the large dogs. For an interactive map of streets and other features of Bartlesville go to GIS City Maps.  To ensure safety and a positive environment for all pets and people, please observe the following basic rules to keep your dog park a fun and safe place to be.
