On Saturday, the Isla Vista Recreation and Parks District held its first annual “Bark Party” event at Sueño Bark Park, hosting a number of furry friends and their owners between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m.
Saturday’s event saw a number of fun games and activities, including a best dog trick contest, a owner-pet lookalike contest, a “bone bar” with free bones and treats, a photo booth and musical chairs: dog edition.
The park, located on 6650 Sueño Road, opened in October. The district – in conjunction with the Associated Students External Vice President of Local Affairs office – funds a free dog training course at the park that takes place every Sunday at 11 a.m.
