A local “Bark Park” (Dog Park) over 7.3 acres in total, aimed at drawing the community’s dog-lovers together through their passion of man’s best friend. Invited as Facilities Chair by the Board, David utilized his design background to push his committee to bring what was once an idea to a usable asset for the “Most Beautiful Small Town in America” (Rand McNally’s “Best of The Road 2012”).

A growing town of 11,735 (2011) incorporates a dog park to offer a place of recreation for people and dogs alike. The Bourbon City Bark Park keeps with the overall theme of Bardstown’s roots in the bourbon industry with bourbon barrel benches and planters throughout the park. The 7.35 acres of dog heaven consists of a large spray pad, gazebo, massive shade trees, obstacle course, dog wash stations, and grass mounds. Pedestrian pathways meander the entire site allowing people the opportunity to exercise while keeping sight of their dog(s) at all times.

Nestled in the woods just off a main road, a “bark-park” is designed to add a place for residents of Bardstown, KY to take their dogs to play and exercise. Named “Most Beautiful Small Town in America” -Rand McNally’s: Best of the Road, the bark park adds variety to the small community. Parks, people places, or animal places…Landesco is experienced in all areas of park and open
space design. Other notable park types include horse parks and trails, whitewater kayak play and training parks, nature preserves, camping grounds, zoos and amusement parks.
