Toronto Gets A Drunk Dog Park And You Can Drink Sake Slushies While Hanging Out With Your Pup

No longer do you have to choose between happy hour and hanging out with your pup, as you can do both at this boozy new dog park opening at Toronto’s Stackt Market.

Bark Yard is the first licensed dog park in the city, and it has its soft launch on June 29. The 4,800-square-foot off-leash dog area comes with a bar so dog parents can sip while the puppies play. The Cocktail Box offers varying drinks and during the month of July you can enjoy boozy sake slushies.

In addition to being a place to meet other canine friends, the space will host a variety of events throughout the season. On June 29, you can go to the soft launch party and enjoy live acoustic music, specialty drinks and cookies.

Every other Wednesday, starting July 13, Brews + Chews will be holding a doggy meeting with drinks and special activities for the pups. Community partners and brands will be appearing throughout the year with various events and activations, so there is always something to look forward to.

Bark Yard is part of the market’s Community Lane improvement project, which is transforming an empty lane into a massive 12,000 square foot outdoor public space.

Community Lane has three separate areas; the Pocket Park, the play area and the Bark Yard. Pocket Park features a green space with seating and a garden, as well as a collection of murals.

Play Zone will have lots of creative space, including a basketball court and radio station.

Get ready for furry friends, boozy drinks and more at Stackt Market’s new dog park.
