Truitt Bark Park
1818 Q Street
The Truitt Bark Park opened to the public on July 29, 2017 featuring separate fenced-in parks for small and large dogs, lighting, trees, and public art. The park was realized through partership between City of Sacramento, Capitol Area Development Authority, Midtown Association, and caring community leaders. The park – which also includes a community garden – was named after civic watchdog and longtime midtown activist Brooks Truitt.
PICNIC TABLES & BENCHES
Truitt Bark Park is bordered by mixed-use and high-end housing developments including the Q19 apartments, the 20 PQR Townhomes, The Ice Blocks, Safeway, Sun & Soil Juice Company, The Zebra Club, and more.
In September 2018, artist John Horton painted the Bark Park Mural which shows Midtown pups at play! This mural is located on the southern side of the park under the Sacramento Regional Transit light rail bridge and was brought to life by the wonderful sponsors CADA, Sacramento Regional Transit, DeBartolo Development, Grupe, and SKK Development.
Coming to the Bark Park in November of 2019, seven 13-foot tall shade umbrellas will be installed in both the small and large dog parks. Thank you to the partners of this effort Sutter Health, QUADRIGA, Capital Area Development Authority, and Councilmember Steve Hansen and the City of Sacramento, and Tricorp Group, Inc.
