Overton Bark

Overton Bark off-leash dog park was the Overton Park Conservancy's very first capital project. Its design fits beneath a canopy of beautiful trees in Memphis’ historic Overton Park, providing a fenced area for dogs to play and owners to socialize. Special attention is given to incorporating old and new materials into the park’s existing aesthetics. A roofed entry porch leads to separate small and big dog areas with each entrance double gated. Drinking fountains include dog bowls, surfacing includes artificial turf at entries and engineered hardwood fiber, and site furnishings are crafted from fallen hardwood trunks.
