Art in the Bark Park
Welcome… to your newly renovated and most talked about dog park. This artistically beautified park will redefine your time in the grass with your own personal downtown Dallas backyard.
Deep Ellum’s latest and greatest beautification project:
On August 26th, 2011, The Deep Ellum Foundation unveiled the project that commissioned over 25 of Dallas’ most talented and amazing artists to muralize the pillars within our famous and most beloved dog park. The murals adorn all the TXDOT highway pillars within the dog park under I‐75 along Good Latimer Expressway, between Canton Street and Commerce Street. The mural images on the pillars are eleven feet high and represent the unique work of local mural artists. This addition to the ever growing permanent artwork collection within the Dallas community also includes a “memorial wall” adorned with a little piece of Dallas residents’ personal relationships with their four-legged friends. Over 25 Dallas dogs had loving owners that donated to the Bark Park project in order to have their portraits muralized on the brand new memorial wall, thus making their beloved animals a little piece of Dallas history.
The opening event featured the world famous Pam Martin with her trick performing and freestyle dancing pups, the ever-loved DJ Ez Eddie D, one of Circus Freaks most gifted light spinners, and many more. Hors d’oeuvres were catered by The Mad Hatter Café, drinks served by the fresh and fabulous Holy Kombucha, and desserts for both owners and their pups by the ever so decadent Candelaria’s Bakery.
