    Great park (need paw pass)

    So much grass and a huge plot of land for the park! I was so happy to have such a great park for my dog to run in. I am from VA so I had to get a day paw pass (only $5) then we had a ball!

    High price for short time

    I can't walk my dogs due to medical reasons and having them run around an enclosed space would be nice for an hour. But since the price is at either $5/day or $60/year I can do neither. I shouldn't have to worry about going to find a place, get a $5 pass for a day, and then go visit the park for an hour.

    Great Park

    Paul Ruster Bark Park is a fantastic dog park where everyone is friendly - dogs and people. The dog park consists of two fenced in play areas, both of which require a pass to get it. To obtain a daily or yearly pass, you have to go to the World Sports Park located at 1313 S Post Rd. Vaccination papers are required. It costs $5 per dog for a daily pass, and $60 per dog for a yearly pass. The office is closed on the weekends, so you havw to get your pass during the week. The dog park itself if located at 11300 Prospect St. Basic rules apply, please pick up after your dog(s) and if he or she shows any aggression, please remove the dog from the park. Otherwise, this is a really great park! It gets muddy after it rains so beware. I recommend this park for those who have dogs who love to play.

    Paul Ruster Bark Park

    The Paul Ruster Bark Park is very clean, always mowed and super big with 2 closed off areas, divided through a wire fence. There is shaded seating for the dog owners to hang out. There are trails in the general park area to take your dog on a hike and a playground in case you are coming with the whole family.

    I am only in Indy ever so often to visit friends and family and this park is just perfect.

    If you like to obtain a DAILY PASS you have to go to the POST ROAD COMMUNITY CENTER ( 1313 S. Post Road)- for any other passes go to the Broad Ripple Park Family Center. POST ROAD COMMUNITY CENTER is currently under construction and parking is tricky but the construction workers will let you know. Daily passes are $5 (or less) for 1 or more dogs. You can purchase up to 3. Bring your dog's vaccination information. I purchased three daily passes on a Thursday and got to hang on the card until Monday! Once you have a daily pass key you can enter or exit the dog park as many times a day as you like. You have to return the plastic key card to the Post Road Community Center the next day. It's a great area, have fun!
