Barc Parks in the Myrtle Beach Area
Myrtle Beach has two off-leash dog parks where owners may let their pets run and play. Both parks are fully fenced and offer separate areas for large and small dogs.
(See the Barc Parc rules, below.)
Dogs must meet height requirements, which are posted on the entrance gates. Rules for behavior also are posted, and owners are responsible for picking up after their pets and properly disposing of the waste. Handy picker-uppers are provided.
Barc Parc South, the original leash-free play space for pooches, is off Mallard Lake Drive near Grand Park and The Market Common. The park covers 14 acres and includes a large lake. Barc Parc North is adjacent to the Claire Chapin Epps Family YMCA on 62nd Avenue North Extension. It covers 3.3 acres and opened in the fall of 2009.
