As a special treat this year, you’ll get to enjoy the annual solar eclipse between 11:00 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Don’t worry, we’ll have some eclipse glasses for sale for just $3 so you don’t miss it!
We’ll also have a raffle with tons of prizes, including gift certificates, gift baskets for dogs and people alike, and more. You do not need to be present to win.
Parking is likely to be available at Heritage Park. There are additional parking options at Hound Mound Dog Park, Gerault Park, and Bakersfield Park. Please do not park in front of the Fire Station on the southwest side of Heritage Park.

The Fine Paw-rint
All dogs attending must be current on all vaccinations including Rabies and DHLPP. Dogs must be on a leash, preferably non-retractable. We ask that dogs not have prongs or choke collars. Aggressive dogs will be asked to leave.
Flower Mound Animal Services will be doing FREE pet registration for town residents. Registering your pet with the town can assist in reuniting your four-legged family member with you if it is lost. If you would like to take advantage of this service, please bring proof of current rabies vaccination in the form of a receipt or vaccination certificate.
