Rockwell Park Other sites' directions are misleading. Off Route 72 (Park St.) and NOT near the Muzzy Field ball park in Rockwell Park, but further up the road about 1/4 mile and across the small river. You will cross the Pequabuck River and the next right turn (opposite Pepin Metal) is N. Park Rd. The Bark Park is just down that road on the left. The dog park is on a steep hillside with two sections (for large dogs and for small). Dogs can negotiate the slope more easily than humans. There are benches within the enclosure and probably plenty of shade in warm weather. See Details
