The Wallingford Dog Lovers Association
On September 26, 2015 just over three years after the Wallingford Dog Lovers Association formed to bring a leash free dog park to our town, the Bert & Harry Subkowsky Bark Park opened. Since then the park has welcomed many furry family members and their humans. Still a work in progress WDLA has maintained the park along with the Parks & Recreation Dept., Wallingford Dept. of Public Works and some very helpful park attendees. We will continue to promote responsible dog ownership and we look forward to the continued support from the town departments and the park visitors. We are always looking for people willing to help with park maintenance and events. Please contact us if you are interested.
Since there is no running water (an issue that will be addressed in the future) it is recommended that you bring water for your dog and share some with other doggies as well. Some of the regular visitors might notice that the bowls are empty early in the morning. The reason for this is to help prevent mosquitoes from breeding. It also assures fresh water is available. There has also been concern about poison ivy in the park. WDLA has been spraying an environmentally friendly mix of vinegar, salt and detergent and the ivy is mostly under control. However the ivy has been there a long time and will continue to sprout over time. WDLA will be spraying often throughout the summer season.
The Bert & Harry Subkowsky Bark Park is located on Quinnipiac Street, Wallingford, CT, a short distance from exit 64 on Route 15.
We would Love to hear from you!
