Dog Lovers Unite! – Rock The Block

Dog Park
Story By Stephanie Weiskopf, Pop-Up Dog Park Team Lead

Rock the Block will feature a “pop up” dog park thanks to the help of smart and talented neighbors in Skinker DeBaliviere! There have been organized groups in the recent past dedicated to developing a dog park in Skinker DeBaliviere and for just one day, come by and see the possibility of what could be.

Using temporary fencing near Westminster and Des Peres, let your well behaved, spayed/neutered dog romp around and play. That’s right – to participate in the park, pet owners will need to agree to a couple of things and sign an “enter at your own risk” waiver. Click on the link below for the dog park waiver.

RTB_type[2]In case your pet doesn’t meet the requirements or you just don’t feel fully comfortable with the idea, still bring them by to complete a doggie art project right next to the dog park. Or learn from a bite prevention specialist about some doggie greeting etiquette.

We look forward to seeing you there! If you are interested in volunteering at the dog park, or would like more information, please contact Stephanie at For information on the Better Block Project, visit our Rock The Block page here!
