BROWNSBURG — You might say the Town of Brownsburg is going to the dogs!

Starting Saturday, the Hendricks County community will officially have its own bark park at Cardinal Park, 3432 Hornaday Road. The ribbon cutting is 9 a.m. and Butler University mascot Blue will be there.

“The enthusiasm for this park has been amazing,” said Brownsburg Parks Director Travis Tranbarger.

The two-acre dog park features separate areas for large and small dogs, natural play features like rocks, wash stations, and dog fountains. And for humans, there is a year-round restroom next door.

“We’re thrilled to be able to offer the community another resource to get outside during the Covid-19 pandemic,” Town Manager Jeffery Eder said.

You don’t have to be a Brownsburg resident to enjoy the dog park. To apply for membership, visit https://brownsburgparks.com/cardinal-bark-park/ [brownsburgparks.com]. Membership fees are $10 per-dog for regular members and $8 per-dog for Brownsburg residents living within town limits.

You may register up to three dogs. Membership fees support park maintenance and administrative activities such as maintaining the health records of dogs.
