The new park, located at 990 W. 101st St. (behind Reasor’s), spans three acres and features separate areas for large and small dogs, water fountains, double gate entries and natural shade.

Barkwest is open daylight to dusk seven days a week. It will be closed from 7 to 10 a.m. on Thursdays for maintenance.

Weekend brings fun adoption opportunities

This Saturday brings with it two fun opportunities to support local animal rescues, or better yet, to adopt a homeless animal.

From 8:30 a.m. to noon, Sky Fitness and Wellbeing will host its second annual Cardio for Canines event at all three area locations. Each location will support a different local rescue group.

For every mile run, meter rowed, stories climbed, group fitness class attended, or training session completed between 8:30 a.m. and noon, Sky will donate money to local non-profits that support animals. There will also be adoptable dogs at each location.

Sky Broken Arrow — Legacy of Hope Dog Rescue
Sky South — River Trails Dog Rescue
Sky Midtown — Route 66 Dog Rescue

Non-members can bring a dog item (food, collar, etc.) to donate in exchange for a one day guest pass. For more information, view the Facebook event here.

After you have worked up an appetite breaking a sweat at Sky Fitness, head on over to Fuel 66 from noon to 4 p.m. for some good food and a beer to celebrate the opening of its new dog park.

The Humane Society of Tulsa will be on-site with low cost vaccinations, $25 microchipping and adoptable animals.

You can get more info about Community Dog Day at Fuel 66 here.

So get out there and make the most of your weekend while supporting local animal shelters and local businesses.
