The Bartlett Dog Park is situated right next to the Animal Shelter. This is the only public place in Bartlett where you are able to release your dog and let him / her run.
The peak hours are Monday-Friday, late in the afternoon before dark. Saturdays and Sundays are at 9:30 a.m. The first visit may be a little overwhelming for both you and your dog. Ease the tension that it's the first time the park isn't so busy.
Shelby Farms Dog Park is 22 acres of meadows and woodland with two large ponds. They've even got a wash station to get all the mud off. Nice way to start a day of travel. If you're ever in Memphis with your dog, this is a must stop. Only a few miles from the I-40.
This is the heaven of a puppy, as long as you have the voice-command power of your dog. If you're still socializing or studying, it may not be the best choice. Although the park is most fenced and very dog friendly, it is very important to remember that the off-leash area is not completely fenced, and the off-leash area bleeds into the rest of Shelby Farms Park without a fenced parameter. There are signs that clearly show the boundaries between off-leash and leash-required areas, but keep a close eye on your pups so they don't wander too far.
It is also important to remember that the side of the park, which faces the nearby apartment complex, is not fenced and your pup can easily walk on the path between the park and the apartments. This is a great dog park. Wide open fields, ponds where dogs can swim, and a gravel lane. There are water fountains, and a tiny hawk near the ground to wash off your dog.
This is a great dog park. So if you don't want your dog to associate with others, you can make your own room. Plus, finding several places to swim is a must have in a high-quality park. The water and the banks of the ponds are dirty, but it's all you need to do to make this park a winner.
There is a large portion of the park where dogs can roam. Be mindful, though, that it isn't fenced off, so be sure that your pooch is under voice command. There are several entrances to this large park, which also includes a variety of city buildings and attractions.
