Yappy Hour

Posse Grounds Park – Multi-Use Field

Weekly social hour for friendly dogs and their owners

Yappy Hour is a weekly one hour program that takes place on the beautiful green grass of the multi-use field at Posse Grounds Park.  This is a special occasion, as City Code and Park Rules state dogs are not allowed on the athletic fields and require all dogs to be on a leash while at the park. Take advantage of allowing your dogs to run free off leash and frolic and play with other pooches.
