Bark in the Park!
It’s not every day you can take your dog to a ballgame. But each summer, the Brooklyn Cyclones invite fans to bring their dogs to the annual Bark in the Park baseball game at MCU Park in Coney Island. At this event you can take part in pet adoptions, learning about pet safety and emergency awareness and just have a blast with the whole family! See below for all the fun details!
The “BOW-WOW Zone:”
While the Brooklyn Cyclones take on 2015’s NYPL champions, the West Virginia Black Bears. Fan’s can enjoy the stadium’s bleacher section — renamed “The BOW-WOW Zone” for the afternoon! It will be reserved for anyone bringing their pooch to the game. The Cyclones will provide water for all the dogs in the bleacher seats as well.
Meet dogs and cats from Brooklyn’s own Sean Casey Animal Rescue on a North Shore Animal League America mobile adoption unit in front of MCU Park, 2:00–5:00 p.m.
