Barking Bay, found at the south end of Rainbow Park, is a small grass lawn off-lease dog area with access to the swimming dock.

Canada Geese have been prevalent at this park and their droppings have had an impact on residents and visitors’ enjoyment of the beach areas. To address this issue, the Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) is following a multifaceted approach to aversion, as well as clean-up efforts.
