Cahill says patrons will be able to enjoy 18  craft brews and two wines. The taproom will be self-serve and guests will be able to sync their credit cards to a BARk Park card that they can use to pour their own beer.

Everyone must sign a waiver prior to entering the park and pups will need a day pass or monthly membership to play. Passes range from $10-216 per dog. Those without a dog can simply enter the establishment for free.

Pups who are up to date on vaccinations (submit records ahead of time here) will be able to run around the 1.5 acres off-leash park while owners relax and watch their dogs play. Dogs must stay on leashes while roaming around the taproom or patio area.

BARk Rangers will be wandering around making sure all is well, however, owners will still need to pay attention and be responsible for their dogs.

The park will be open 2-10 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 10 a.m.-10 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. The grand opening will take place on Saturday, April 23 from 2-8 p.m.

The BARk Park & Patio is located at 7544 Burlington Pike, Florence. Find more information at barkparkpatio.com.
