McBark Dog Park Presented by Gary Lang Subaru

Click here for the Dog Park Registration Packet. McBark Dog Park is located north of the McHenry Kohls with parking in the existing lot north of the store. We would like to thank Kohls and IDOT for their cooperation in granting the use of the site for the dog park. The park features shade, a large running area for dogs, onsite parking and running water. The park is open from 7 am to dusk. The dog park provides year-round opportunities for dogs and their owners to socialize as well as exercise – both important to an animal’s temperament and health.
