The Elmo & Rosalea Marrs Memorial Dog Park is a 1 ½ acre, fenced facility for dogs to go off-leash to run, play, socialize and exercise. There are separate areas for small and large dogs. The park features concrete pathways, a pavilion, picnic tables, benches, agility and play equipment for the dogs. The park is open sun up to sun down, weather permitting. All members will receive an electronic key fob to gain entrance. The park is located in Stockstill Park at 524 Stockstill Lane.
An annual membership fee to the park helps provide necessary revenue for on-going expenses and allow for future upgrades to the Dog Park. A membership based park promotes safety by tracking the "members" and ensuring that all dogs have current vaccinations before being admitted. An application for membership is available at the Branson RecPlex or can be obtained on-line. Please fill out all necessary information and return the paperwork, along with a copy of your dog’s current shot records, to the Branson RecPlex.
