Barks in the Park

Saturday, September 10th, 2016

10 am to 2 pm at the Gardiner Waterfront Park

Barks 2012Woof Woof! 2016 is the 7th annual Gardiner Barks in the Park at Gardiner Waterfront Park.

Last year was a great success and fun was had by all-man and beast!  Rescue groups from around the region will be present to discuss their activities along with local veterinarians presenting information on issues facing pets and pet owners. Demonstrations by specialty dog trainers will be present during the event. The focus of the event will be to have a great day in the park with the dogs and to raise money to build the Gardiner Dog Park and other dog amenities.  Proceeds from Barks In The Park go to fund a future dog park for Gardiner. To date, the Main Street Organization has saved close to $3,800 in seed money to create a dog park.  This year we hope to exceed that amount so that we can come even closer to our goal of $5,000.
