Bark in the Park

It's not every day you can take your dog to a ball game. But each summer, the Brooklyn Cyclones invite fans to bring their dogs to the annual Bark in the Park baseball game at MCU Park in Coney Island. Cyclones fans and their canine friends have the opportunity for an exciting "dog's day" of fun as the Cyclones take on another team.

Each year, the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals participates in Bark in the Park by presenting dog and cat adoptions from Alliance Participating Organizations and other crowd-pleasing activities, including great photo ops for the kids with Maddie, the six-foot Miniature Schnauzer mascot from Maddie's Fund. Fans also enjoy ballpark specials offered by the Cyclones.

Dog Parade: Take part in a pre-game trot around the field with your dog.

Maddie: Meet Maddie, the Maddie's Fund mascot, and watch her toss a ceremonial first pitch.

Tickets are $10 and include one person and up to two dogs; seating in the bleacher section. To purchase tickets in advance, call (718) 382-2604.
