    Nice facilities

    Very nice facilities with easy access and paved parking, nice benches, water provided. I have a six month old shepherd who needs to be socialized, but there is an unmanaged, huge Great Dane mix who harassed my dog (really scared me when I picked up my dog to get her OUT of there), and the owner saw but was oblivious. Very frustrating because she has been there with all three of her huge black dogs the last three times we’ve gone. Aggressive dogs. I don’t know that I’ll go back. (Second two times we saw them we didn’t go in as Remi was traumatized from the first experience.) Extremely disappointing.

    Park rules

    People with dogs weighing over 25 lbs insist on putting their dogs in the small dog section because " they are puppies or they are shy or they don't play rough". Love the park but my small dogs should have a safer place to play.

    Nice park

    This is a very nice dog park, except for one crazy man who brings his two dogs every day around 10:00 and finds insane reasons to start harassing the other dog owners! He yells and rages, hard to ignore when you are just trying to enjoy some play time with your dogs.

    Went here for the first time today with my new small rescue dog from the Humane Society. He is very bashful and I want to socialize him with dogs and people. He did very well. Looking forward to taking him more often, now that I have been here once.

    Great place, with the exception of an un-neutered pit bull who climbed on top of my Boxer and started aggressively growling--trying to achieve dominance. There's always one...

    My dog loves this park!

    My dog LOVES to run at this park. Always clean and well maintained. Grassy areas don't get too muddy and the park is big enough for the dogs to run, but not too big. Other owners are respectful and friendly.

    Best Park Ever

    Today was my first time to visit the dog park. My Boston Terrier, Layla, that is 8 months old got so much energy out, romping & playing with the other dogs. I was a little leery about her being with other dogs since she never has, but she was a champ; She loved all of them. The only thing I saw that could have been an improvement would have been something to make a shade for the owners sitting and watching their little ones play.

    I am new dog owner and was very happy to discover this park so close to my house. The people and dogs that are here are wonderful and very welcoming.
