BARK! IN THE PARK is the purrfect time to visit Ponderosa State Park, located at 1920 N. Davis Avenue, in McCall. This park is a cherished community treasure. You will unwind as you stroll through its beautiful forest and meadows. Follow MCPAWS signs into the park and leash up for a g-r-r-e-at canine outing!

BARK! IN THE PARK is a 3k fun walk to raise essential funds for MCPAWS Regional Animal Shelter.This year we will also have a Shelter Dog Show so our shelter dogs can strutt their stuff! 

Leash up your pooch for a great outing through the scenic meadows and forests of Ponderosa State Park. Post-walk festivities include a picnic lunch, live music and contests and prizes for you and your best friend. We’ll have water stations for thirsty canines and humans. Plus-- and this is the best part-- adoptable MCPAWS dogs will be at BARK! In The Park. Can one (or two) become a new member of your family?!
