Local Residents Want Noisy Bark Park Muzzled

Several long term property owners/residents of the cul-de-sac portion of Wyndemere Avenue (just east of Pershing Avenue) are protesting the constant noise emanating from Bergen County’s Bark Park located within the Ridgewood Wild Duck Pond Area.

Speaking during last week’s Village Council meeting, at least three residents of the cul-de-sac complained about being subjected to 12 hours of non stop barking, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Complaints also surfaced with regard to regular illegal parking along the Park’s main access road.

Mayor David T. Pfund indicated that a meeting between Village officials and representatives from the Bergen County Parks Department had already been scheduled by Village Attorney Matthew S. Rogers, and a report of that meeting would be discussed publicly during an upcoming Village Council Work Session.

  1. All that dog noise is nothing compared to the noise the hospital generates. Just go down Steilen.

    The hospital operates 24 hours a day/night. They have large trucks entering and exiting at all hours as well. The traffic that needs police to come and direct traffic as well as the accidents from patients and visitors as well as staff making illegal U-turns in driveways and going through red lights etc…

  2. This is so stupid. The noise is not 12 hours a day. I spend hours there, and there is plenty of time with no barking. And the people in the dog park ARE NOT the ones parking illegally. More importantly, why do these people care how poeple are parking?
