BARKing Spot

BARK(ing) Spot is happening September 21

The Anti-Cruelty Society has teamed up with landscape design and urban planning firm, The Lakota Group, to transform two parking spaces on the 100 block of West Illinois Street into a dog-friendly green space to celebrate PARK(ing) Day. PARK(ing) Day is a day dedicated to calling attention to the need for more urban open space. On this day, metered parking spaces across the world will be temporarily transformed into public places to re-examine the way urban space is allocated.

The temporarily transformed space will feature landscaping, places to sit and play, as well as adoptable dogs from The Anti-Cruelty Society. The public is invited to stop by between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m. to enjoy this green space and meet dogs looking for forever homes. For more information, visit
