We're all aching for social contact during these difficult times, and you can believe our pets are pining, too! Pups all over the city have been missing their weekly (dare we say daily?) outings to the only designated dog park in town. But there's no reason to roll over just yet! New Orleans City Park recently announced the reopening of NOLA City Bark on Tuesday, May 26th!

While the socialization of the city's sweet pooches are important, the denizens of NOLA City Bark must also understand and abide by state ordinances to keep humans safe during the pandemic. Respecting the health of both visitors and employees, the dog park has outlined the following restrictions:

  • You may bring your own chairs, but must take them when you leave.

  • All water fountains for humans will be nonoperational.
