Head Over to the New

Park 'N Bark Dog Park in Mokena


These days, it seems like dogs are everywhere! 


For good reason.  Did you know that ...

  • Dog ownership has grown 29% over the last decade?
  • Multiple-Dog households grew at an even faster rate?
  • The growth in the number of Dog Owners far exceeds our population growth?
  • Millennials and Boomers lead the way in growth in dog ownership?

There are many health benefits to be found for all those dogs (and their owners) during daily dog walks and playtime.  But dogs receive benefits from playing with other dogs too.  

Pups are very social creatures.  They run and play harder when other dogs are involved.  They rid themselves of pent-up energy, become more social, and can even improve their behavior and social skills by playing with other canines.  

So it's no wonder that dog parks are becoming a focal point of interest when dog owners are considering a move to a new community.  The existence of a dog park within a community proves to dog owners that the community is pet-friendly.  That the community is concerned about the safety and security of their pet(s).

Mokena, IL is one such community.  Opened recently, the Park 'N Bark Dog Park located on LaPorte Road next to the Yunker Park Site (and part of the Mokena Community Park District) offers a safe place for your pup to play and roam in the Lincoln-Way Area.  

A pass is needed to take advantage of this new dog park facility.  Passes are sold at the Mokena Community Park District Administration Center.  (Re-registration is required every year.)


Costs for the park are as follows:

  • Mokena Resident's Pass:  $5 for 1st dog/$5 each additional dog
  • Non-Resident Pass:  $15/per year for 1st dog/$5 each additional dog

Each dog using the park must be up-to-date on the following immunizations:  Hepatitis, Parainfluenza, Distemper, Rabies, and Parvovirus.  Bordatella (prevents spread of Kennel Cough) is recommended, but not required.

A link to the Park 'N Bark Dog Park Registration Packet is easily found HERE.   The Mokena Park District asks that all visitors (2-legged and 4) adhere to dog park rules while visiting.

How wonderful to have a dog park.  And equally wonderful that your community has a dog park, and the price is reasonable.  Wishing you a wonderful holiday.  A

Hi Gene... these parks are super-popular here in the Charlotte area and we have quite a few of them now. And some subdivisions, like mine, also have private dog parks for the residents.

That's fabulous! I love that communities are now accepting pet parents into the folds and creating these parks everywhere and it's a great socializing venue to meet other dog crazed parents!!!  I wish I had one near me so that my pup could make a few friends.  Great blog post!
