All New Downtown Dog Park

By Chris

Exciting news for downtown dog owners and visitors traveling with their pups! MacArthur Park is holding the grand opening of Little Rock’s newest dog park tomorrow, March 30, at 12:40 p.m.

Located at the southeast corner of the park (near the law school), MacArthur UNLEASHED is a two-acre play place for your canine buddies, featuring fire hydrants painted by local artists, a dog washing area, watering stations (for dogs and their humans), fenced-in areas for small dogs (30 lbs. and under) and large dogs, and more.

Another “don’t miss” event combining food and fun with your pups is the “Paws ‘n Craws” fundraiser 2 p.m. Saturday, April 6 across from the dog park at the Foster Pavilion. Profits will go toward expansion of the dog park, including the addition of a shade structure, public art, a solar powered emergency call box, WiFi access, and more LED lighting and seating. Tickets are $30 and include crawfish and all of the fixins’, as well as beer and live music. Dogs get in free.
