As site plan shows, Fetch Park & Ice House bills itself as great for both recreation and work, all accompanied by pooches

Fetch Park & Ice House, “Atlanta’s first full-service dog park bar + restaurant,” is scurrying toward completion at the southwestern tip of Old Fourth Ward.

Located along Decatur Street at Boulevard, the dog-friendly greenspace, complete with full-service bar and restaurant, is coming together between King Memorial MARTA Station and the Beltline’s Eastside Trail.

To celebrate an anticipated autumn opening, the venue has opened presales for annual memberships, which allow unlimited entry to the park.

For $240, the pass gives access to park perks like two dog washing stations, cooling and heating stations to keep pets comfy, and 15 to 20 free events throughout the year.

For those just interested in swinging by every now and then, daily passes will be available for $10. Entry for the general public (without pets) is free.

While ice houses are a common feature in many Texas towns, Fetch will be the first of its type in Atlanta. The venue bills itself as the perfect place to relax with friends, both two- and four-legged, as well as come to get work done and hold meetings with other canine-owning colleagues.

A restaurant constructed from shipping containers will feature a full menu and rooftop space for relaxing. And a vintage Airstream turned bar will offer craft cocktails, beer, and wine to guests while they enjoy the off-leash section of the park.

Plans call for the park to open this fall. That should get some tails wagging.

Here’s a look at the planned layout:
