One of the best dog parks I've been to. A lot of work has gone into making it and it clearly shows, this is an essential part of the dog owner community in Hyde Park. Would recommend 5/5.

Great place to come with your dog. Right on the lake, in the park, with great agility courses for the dogs. Run by volunteers. Hope people appreciate and support this place.

I've been to them all and this is one of the best if not THE BEST dog park in the city. Do yourself and your pup(s) a favor and take them here... at least once.

'Science Drive' is the entrance road. If you go to GoogleMaps and search 'Jackson Bark' you'll see it's just SE of the Museum of Science and Industry and North of Jackson Bark.
