Hundreds of nominations for America’s Best Dog Park were sent in for this year’s competition, but only one was chosen as this year’s winner – Jackass Acres K-9 Korral.
This New River, Ariz., dog park was named this year’s best for, “it’s efforts to be green,” says DOG FANCY editor Susan Chaney. “The park has solar-powered lights, a security system, and water pumps, as well as decorative metal flowers made from old cars, furniture crafted from fallen timber, and recycled artificial turf. How could we not love a park like that?” she adds.
The runners-up are:
- Bow Wow Beach, Stow, Ohio
- Broemmelssiek Park Off-Leash Dog Area, St. Charles, Mo.
- Frankfort Bark Park, Frankfort, Ill.
- Hammel Woods Forest Preserve Dog Park, Shorewood, Ill.
- MonDaug Bark Park, Fort Washington, Pa.
- Paw OK Dog Park, Oklahoma City, Okla.
