About this community:

Tyler, Texas and the surrounding East Texas communities have a population approaching 250,000 residents. Serving as the “hub” of East Texas, Tyler boasts an active tourism business. Home to the Annual East Texas Rose Festival, Red Dirt and the Azalea Trails draw over 100,000 visitors each year to Tyler.

Why this community deserves a Bark for Your Park™ grant:

The Bossart Bark Park is an 8-acre community park located on 60 acres of beautiful, wooded rolling hills surrounding a large lake. Bossart Bark Park, which opened in 2018, allows dog owners the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors safely with their companion pets. By upgrading the Bark Park with PetSafe® grant funds, the community will continue to improve the dogs and their human owner’s experiences. The grant will add features to the Bark Park during an exciting time. By 2022, The SPCA of East Texas is moving all operations including Rescue, Intake & Re-homing, Adoption, Transport, a Dog and Cat Sanctuary and SNIPPET, a low-cost high volume spay/neuter clinic, to the Bossart Bark Park. By combining these services convenient to dog park visitors, it will become the only central community hub for animal rescue services and pet recreation.

How this community would use a Bark for Your Park™ grant:

The Bossart Bark Park currently has many popular features including large, separately fenced areas for large and small dogs, along with benches, dog and human drinking fountains, a large pond, and shade pavilions. Feedback from Bark Park visitors supports the addition of canine agility equipment. Park visitors felt this equipment would add additional activities to provide exercise and enrichment for their dogs. The equipment planned includes a course made up of above ground tunnels, hoops, weave poles, jumps, and walkways.
