Bark Island

Join Waggs and Megan at Bark Island

Dog owners and their canine companions are warmly invited to come along and join in the free island-themed fun, from 9.30am to 11.30am on Sunday 13 November, where a portion of the eastern part of Park Island will have been transformed into “Bark Island”. 

And if you dress up your four-legged friend for the doggy runway (think Hawaiian shirts, leis, grass skirts and hibiscus!), you will both be in to win some great prizes.

Our judges and special celebrity guests will be Ria Vandervis and Amelia Reid-Meredith - who play Harper and Bella, respectively, on Shortland Street.

There are plenty of spot prizes, great stalls and an opportunity to have a portrait with your pooch! 

Napier City Council’s Animal Control team will be on duty, ready to hand out treats along with any advice dog owners may wish to hear, on everything from exercise to obedience.

All dogs must remain on a lead.

For the humans, there will be barista made coffee, ice cream, a sausage sizzle and twisted chips available to purchase.

Park Island is a popular place for dogs (and their owners!) to hang out. Come along and make some new memories at one of their favourite places.
