Bark Park silenced in Diamond Bar for ADA work

Bark Park at Pantera Park in Diamond Bar has closed to allow for ADA improvements. These improvements include constructing paved paths from the park walkway to entry gates at the dog play areas, as well as a new set of stairs.

Construction should be finished in November, with the park reopening by Thanksgiving weekend.

Bark Park opened in 2012 and features two enclosed areas where dogs can exercise and socialize leash-free. Amenities include two shade structures, three pet-friendly drinking fountains, five dog waste bag dispensers and a dozen benches.

For more information, call the Community Services Department at 909-839-7060.
